Dairy giant Amul, on Wednesday, took social media by storm with an adorable cartoon-based advertisement honouring Board of Control for Cricket in India President-elect Sourav Ganguly.

Known for its colourful and interesting take on current affairs, Amul used penchant wordplay along with a picture of Dada sitting on a chair and sporting the boss look in a suit. The 47-year-old is seen enjoying a butter toast with the Amul girl dressed in a blue suit, holding a bat in her hand.



The caption, in a cheesy twist to an old Hindi hit song from film 'Taj Mahal' (1963) goes: 'Dada (Ganguly) kiya to nibhana padega' (Ganguly has done it... so it's time he fulfilled it) with the punchline, "Butter Created Completely in India", denoting BCCI in a clever way.

Ganguly is set to become the BCCI President on October 23 at the Board's Annual General Meeting in Mumbai. The whole nation has been going gaga over the development with the former India captain hogging much of the limelight since late on Sunday night when the news emerged.

Happy Birthday, Dada

8 Jul, 2019
'Prince of Kolkata' and 'God of off-side' are just phrases that try to define the legend that Sourav Ganguly is. Fondly known as 'Dada', Ganguly is considered as one of the greatest captains in the history of Indian cricket. An incredibly-gifted player, Ganguly's 16-year cricketing career boasts of 311 ODIs where he scored 11,363 runs. The man who stands as the third-highest run-scorer for India in ODIs, has 22 centuries and 72 half-centuries in his name, in the limited-overs format. The former skipper, who hung his boots from the game in 2008, has groomed several of India's finest players including Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh and Virender Sehwag. After quitting the game 11 years ago, Dada went on to make his mark in other fields of life. Today, as the legend of Indian cricket turns 47, here's a peek at what Dada did after retiring from all forms of cricket.
