Hema Malini Issues A Statement On Her Stand On The Recent ‘Kent Atta Maker’ Ad

| Published on May 30, 2020

Kent Ro‘s recent advertisement for its dough kneading machine has received a lot of flak for its disrespectful statement. Many Twitter users pointed out the insensitive content promoted by such a big brand.

The ad read, “Are you allowing your maid to knead atta dough by hand?” the advertisement asked, and added, “Her hands may be infected,” in reference to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. “Choose KENT Atta & Bread Maker for hands-free kneading of dough. Let automation take care of hygiene this time!”

It instantly went viral and soon the brand also took notice of the people’s outrage and issued an apology. Soon after, Hema Malini, actor & politician, who also has been endorsing the brand came forward and expressed her feelings regarding the advertisement and made her stand clear on the whole issue.

Even Kent has apologized for this.

In a clarification posted on Twitter, Hema Malini wrote, “Views expressed by the recent advertisement of Kent Atta by @KentROSystems do not resonate with my values and are inappropriate. The chairman has already tendered a public apology for the mistake. I hereby wish to put on record that I respect and stand by all sections of society.”

The advertisement in question has since been taken down. Kent Ro Systems is a Noida based company that has expanded its products range from water purifiers to kitchen appliances and air purifiers.
