An indeed lot of investment was done on the advertisement but the thing that went wrong from Pepsi Co. was not getting permission from the previous makers of the song. A general opinion regarding the remake of Dil Dil Pakistan wasn’t good. Very few were satisfied with its remake and majority didn’t like it. Upon the orders of Court Pepsi removed Dil Dil from the advertisement and now only Pakistaaan is heard in voice of Ayesha Omer is heard during the add.
