When Ranveer Singh became the brand ambassador of a condom brand five years ago to promote safe sex, he took everyone by surprise.
After all, he was the first mainstream actor to take up such an initiative.
However, recent reports suggest that he has parted ways amicably with the condom brand and is no longer associated with them.
Reason? His marital status.
According to Forbes, the condom brand and Ranveer have mutually taken the decision of going separate ways.
"Both agreed to part ways amicably," a source close to Ranveer confirmed.
"The Gully Boy's higher fee and his new 'married' status -- Ranveer married actor Deepika Padukone in November last year -- could have had a bearing on the termination of the contract," the report added.
Earlier, the condom brand had grabbed headlines after they posted a cheeky tweet to congratulate Ranveer and Deepika on their wedding. "We've got you covered. Congrats Deepika & Ranveer for officially putting a ring on it," the company wrote on Twitter.
Given Ranveer's stardom, he generated a lot of popularity for the brand during his association with them.
He had also admitted to carrying condoms in his wallet.
"With the kind of problems we face in our country - HIV and STDs and unwanted pregnancies, I feel that if there is one product that needs to be endorsed, it's condoms," Ranveer had said.
On the work front, Ranveer is enjoying the best phase of his life currently.
After delivering three back-to-back blockbusters, Padmaavat, Simmba and Gully Boy, the actor has made it to the league of A-listers in Bollywood.
The 33-year-old is currently gearing up for '83, based on the 1983 World Cup.
Besides, the Bajirao Mastani actor also launched his first independent record label, IncInk, recently.
