Women are often stereotyped when it comes to driving and the world assumes that they can never be good drivers. Breaking this stereotype, Hero has released its new ad Ladki Chala Rahi Hai featuring Alia Bhatt.
The video throws light on the taboo in a quirky way. It starts with a jam-packed road and two uncle says pakka ladki chala rahi hogi.
