Why Ranbir Kapoor is the perfect brand ambassador for Askme?
Ranbir kapoor is the perfect youth icon for a product which is widely used by the youth. As in india 70% of the internet audience is youth and they are the only aware audience who uses the technology to make life easier. Getting ranbir for promoting the baap of all apps was a very smart move by AskMe as it has given them a boost in goodwill for the company. Many people are using the app just because ranbir is promoting it and apparently it has worked in favor of AskMe.
