Mar '13
Dance exponent, actor, director and choreographer, Prabhu Deva is matching steps with ‘Bigboss’ Akshay Kumar in the new campaign from Dollar Industries, makers of Dollar innerwear. 
Akshay Kumar has been a brand envoy for Dollar premium innerwear and now Prabhdeva joins him to add zing to the campaign.
“Our association with Akshay Kumar as Dollar’s brand ambassador has helped in the growth of the brand tremendously, across India. We are confident that this campaign will also become extremely popular like the previous ones”, said Mr Vinod Gupta, Managing Director, Dollar Industries Ltd.
Previous campaigns showcased Akshay Kumar as a ‘Macho’ hero, but this new campaign will see him dancing with Prabhdeva and even outperforming him.

Signing Akshay Kumar as the brand ambassador resulted in Dollar Industries achieving a staggering 200 percent sales growth in 2011. The growth of the company is on an upswing since then, with annual growth rates averaging 15% year-on-year.
