Bollywood actor has floored the fans with her witty reply on social media

Taco Bell, the world’s leading Mexican-inspired restaurant brand, earlier this month launched a one-of-a-kind offering ‘The Ultimate Cheese Taco’, tantalizing consumer’s taste buds with a delightfully cheesy surprise. Giving it a new cheesy twist, the brand has collaborated with Bollywood actor Mrunal Thakur, who gave a witty reply to unfiltered comments by expressing herself through a quirky and indulgent gesture of cheese pull with ‘The Ultimate Cheese Taco.’

Being a recent entrant to Bollywood, Mrunal Thakur has been at the receiving end of sarcastic comments on social media. In her latest video, Mrunal is seen taking a stance for herself against those who question her capability to ‘pull’ off tough roles and grab eyeballs alongside megastars. As her response, she is seen relishing the ultimate cheese pull to showcase her confidence in pulling off everything that she sets her sight on. Finally, Mrunal bites into ‘The Ultimate Cheese Taco’ and says, “A cheese pull so long, your words will fall short.”

Commenting on the collaboration, Tushar MehtaAssistant Vice President – Marketing, Burman Hospitality Private Limited, Taco Bell’s exclusive franchise partner in India, said,  “Being a youth-centric brand, Taco Bell continues to create craveable flavors and bespoke experiences that resonate with Gen Z.

We are thrilled by the excellent consumer response and umpteen love that ‘The Ultimate Cheese Taco’ has garnered and aim to continue to delight our consumers time and again.”

I am my own person who believes in focusing on the good at all times. My collaboration with Taco Bell is a reflection of how I deal with derisive comments. Responding to trolls in a fun and poised manner not only empowers me to be a stronger and bolder version of myself but also remain unaffected by them. To all those people, I just want to say that Mrunal can definitely pull off everything as easily as the cheesiest taco in town! Taco Bell’s ‘The Ultimate Cheese Taco’ is my go-to meal whenever I want to pull away and dive into something super cheesy,” Mrunal Thakur, Bollywood actor.
