A billboard of a condom ad featuring Sunny Leone, has caused outrage in Gujarat. The ad for Manforce preaches safe sex during Navratris but the ad has misfired for the brand and the actress.

The advertisement, which features in Gujarati, says: ‘Aa Navratriye ramo, paraantu prem thi’ (Play this Navratri but with love). Loosely translated in Hindi, it would mean: ‘Khelo magar pyar se’.

Sunny is the brand ambassador of the Indian condom brand, Manforce. According to a report in a leading daily, a city-based group organized a protest against the advertisement and demanded that the hoardings be removed. In fact, Narendra Chaudhary, the president of Hindu Yuva Vahini has gone on record and said: “The message in Gujarati on the hoarding reads ‘Aa Navratri a ramo, parantu premthi’ – Play but with love, this Navratri. The insinuation on the hoardings from a condom brand insults the religious sentiments of Hindus.”

Here’s what Twitter had to say on the matter.
