Well, let’s decode the ad frame by frame!

Here’s the opening frame of the TVC that shows a group of friends travelling in a jeep. The next shot shows them in a troubled mood due to the problem in their jeep.

The guy then prays to his Darling (the jeep, in this case) and debates with Sonam Kapoor in an unusual manner. What evoked ‘Surprises’ is when the other friend refers to her as Rocky!
