Needless to say, Twitter users showered praises on Chopra’s acting skills in the ad, and of course jokes and memes also followed. Some even jokingly said that he should get an Oscar for his performance in the advertisement. “Cred once again hits it out of the park. And Neeraj Chopra shows his good acting skills, too, along with portraying various wacky characters,” one user commented.
“Each and every scene featuring Neeraj Chopra is epic. Javelin-Ek Prem Katha… Neeraj hua Maddham. And at last, the song ‘Javelin’. Superb, Neeraj Chopra sir,” commented another.
Check out some of the reactions:
