The pairing of Hrithik Roshan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan gave us hit films like Jodhaa Akbar, Dhoom, and Guzaarish.

An old commercial for a popular soft drink featuring Hrithik and Aishwarya went viral on the internet which has made fans lose their mind.
The advertisement is from the early 2000s and Hrithik and Aishwarya have been cast as college students. In the video, Hrithik can be seen in a blue fitted tee shirt and black denim, and Aishwarya in a red checked mini skirt and yellow fitted top. They are introduced as best friends who contest against each other in the college polls. Aishwarya is seen as Tina and Hrithik as Rohit. Hrithik votes for Aishwarya on the day of voting, but the results declare a tie between them. Aishwarya, upset by the result sits alone in a corner, as Hrithik joins her and offers the soft drink. Then both of them walk away together and Aishwarya is seen throwing a voting paper which she had earlier removed from her votes.
