You can catch Ranbir on TV where he will be representing the brand in a new advert. The ad will reportedly see Ranbir showing off his moves to the popular retro dance hit Saara Zamaana, made popular by B-town biggie Amitabh Bachchan. Why pick that song? Because in the original video, Amitabh wore a suit made up entirely of lights, a fitting outfit for the disco craze of the time.

The song is an icon in Indian cinema and Philips is trying to give it a new twist. Ranbir said that he had a great time shooting for the ad in a similar lit-up suit, but obviously one with a more contemporary vibe and bulbs branded with the Philips logo.

Hoping to get something juicy out of the Barfi star, someone asked him who lit up his life. Ranbir had a long list which included Charlie Chaplin and Sachin Tendulkar. Not what that reporter was expecting, we’re sure!
As for the adverts, they will debut on October 25, 2013.
