The ‘Mauka Mauka’ advertisement created by Star Sports to promote its broadcast of Cricket World Cup has returned once again and fans have already started the debate even when the match between Asian giants India and Pakistan is a week far.
As the International Father’s Day as well as India vs Pakistan match is approaching soon, Star Sports has mixed the two in their ‘Mauka Mauka’ ad. The video shows actor Vikas Malhotra, playing the Pakistani son whose father kept waiting for Pakistan to beat the Indian cricket team in a World Cup match.
Vikas in the promo, acts as the son of Pakistani fan and advises the Bangladeshi fan that “one should keep trying.” He says that his father had advised him to keep trying and never give up.
Immediately, the India fan is seen asking rhetorically, “When did I (your father) told you this?” The Pakistani fan doesn’t get the ‘Baap’ jibe at first and says “Not you, my Abbu (father) told me” but then stops immediately when he understands that the Indian fan meant that his team is he master since ever.

Mauka Mauka advertisement created by Star Sports (Indian TV network) aimed to promote its broadcast of the 2015 Cricket World Cup. Although initially planned as a standalone advert for the India–Pakistan group stage match, following the overwhelming positive response for the first video, the channel made a series of adverts for each of India’s matches at the World Cup.
