Indian brand Fortune Oils unveiled its latest campaign with actor Akshay Kumar in an engaging emotional film where it aims to emphasize on 'Ghar ka khana, ghar ka khana hota hai’ (nothing comes close to home-cooked food) and that it is not just a positioning, but also an emotion.

TVC films begins with Akshay spending time with army jawans (soldiers) at a camp – drawing on his association and support for the Indian Army.

On interacting with the jawans, Akshay realises that one of the things they miss is home-cooked food. Overwhelmed by soldiers’ sacrifice, Akshay expresses his wish to cook for them. His pre Bollywood avatar that is Rajiv Bhatia comes alive as he was a cook before.. Akshay then proceeds to cook a delicious, just-like-home meal, including the army men’s favourites.
