Mauka Mauka ads are making a comeback, Ravindra Jadeja was seen shooting the advertisement before the India vs Pakistan Cricket World Cup 2023 match.
One of the most anticipated clashes in the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2023 will be the match between arch-rivals India vs Pakistan which will take place on October 14 at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Rohit Sharma's Team India and Babar Azam-led Pakistan faced each other twice in the Asia Cup 2023 earlier this month, with one match being washed out due to rain and India defeating Pakistan in the second match in Colombo in the Super 4 stage. Defeated by 228 runs.
With Team India gaining dominance over their neighbours, the official broadcaster of the World Cup - Star Sports - is set to bring back the famous 'Mauka Mauka' TV ad campaign. Recently, in the 'Behind the Scene' video that went viral on social media, Team India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is seen shooting with 'Mauka Mauka' model Vishal Malhotra.

Ahead of the India-Pakistan cricket match, here’s a look at all the popular Mauka Mauka ads
The advertisement begins with a young Pakistani cricket supporter in Karachi in the year 1992, buying crackers to burst when Pakistan defeated India in the World Cup. But he is still not getting a chance to break them, as his team has failed to defeat India in any World Cup.
This advertisement was released before the India-Pakistan match in the ICC World T20 2016. In this advertisement, a Pakistani fan is seen recording a video message for Shahid Afridi expressing his disappointment over Pakistan's four defeats to India in the ICC World T20.
This match coincidentally took place on Father's Day in 2019. Keeping this in mind, the creative made sure to revolve around this at every opportunity. This ad was an extension of the 2016 ad. Here a Bangladeshi fan is seen wishing a sad Pakistani man who could never burst crackers good luck for the upcoming India-Pakistan match.
The 2021 ads show a man wearing a Pakistan cricket jersey walking into an electronic store owned by his friend with a box of crackers to buy a big television set to watch the T20 World Cup series. The camera then shows a glimpse of how a man broke his TV screen after the telecast of India's win in 2012.
