MDH was among the first few companies to launch an aggressive press ad campaign in 1948.
MDH launched its first television ad in 1984 featuring Dharampal Gulati. The ad also featured veteran actors Shafi Inamdar and Neena Gupta.
Soon after, all the TV ads featured Dharam Pal as the brand ambassador for his company. The cardboard box pack, launched in 1948, also carried his photograph.
Asked why MDH doesn't feature a celebrity of Bollywood actors, Gulati had said, "People ask me why I don’t get Shah Rukh Khan or Amitabh Bachchan to promote my masalas. Why should I ride on their success to promote my brand? I am the man behind the success of my product, so shouldn’t I be promoting it?"
MDH recently celebrated its 100th anniversary by releasing an ad featuring Gulati.
Here are few more MDH ads featuring Dharampal Gulati.
