Watch:'s new ad based on Kanhaiya Kumar's "Azadi" speech goes viral
Months after the infamous JNU row, now travel agency has released its latest ad campaign, which has made the incident alive once again. The ad campaign spoof the now-famous Azadi speech by JNUSU president, Kanhaiya Kumar in a very humorous way.

The Yatra's commercial shows a Kanhaiya Kumar's lookalike who delivers a speech while demanding 'Azadi' to choose a window seat in airplane soon after he realized that all the window seats are pre-occupied.

Notably, he speaks in the JNUSU president's signature vernacular accent while delivering his own version of Azadi speech.

Ever since Kanhaiya Kumar shot into the fame after the long drawn JNU protests, his catchy 'Azadi' speech has become popular. Kumar was arrested over sedition charges and was jailed for around three weeks. Later he was released on 6-months' bail on March 3.

Watch the campaign video by Yatra below:

Yatra, eventually at the end of the campaign, also sends out a message taking a dig at the JNU protest saying, "if you want a window seat, don't do "Narrebaazi"(sloganeering) do "Samajhdaari"( the sensible thing) and download the Yatra app."

Well, this is not the first time such plot has impressed the advertisers. In october last year, a similar campaign featuring the FTII students protest was released. In this campaign the iconic multinational soft-drink maker Pepsi made a mockery out of the protest and won many hearts.

In the one-minute TV commercial, a group of college students were shown who were on indefinite hunger strike. While the student leader was talking about their indefinite hunger strike, one student gives in and guzzles down a bottle of Pepsi. It was indeed humorous.
