What did the company say
Adani Wilmar deputy chief executive Angshu Malik said, “We will continue to work with Sourav Ganguly and he will continue to be our brand ambassador.” We have just put a temporary halt in our TV commercial and will work with Saurav again. This is an unfortunate incident that can happen to anyone.
Defending his healthy oil, Malik said, ‘Rice bran oil is not a medicine, it is only cooking oil. In the case of the heart, a variety of factors are affected, such as food and genetic issues.
He said that rice bran is considered a very healthy option for hot. It is worth noting that Sourav Ganguly was made the brand ambassador of Fortune Rice Bran Cooking Oil in January 2020.
