After having recently become the ambassador of a beauty brand, mid-day has learnt that the actress has replaced Jacqueline Fernandez to become the face of athletic brand, Puma.

A source associated with the brand says, “The final deal happened two weeks ago. Disha is a young face with great social media following and visibility. That is exactly the target audience we are looking at.”

Interestingly, the brand will rope in cricketer Virat Kohli as the male face for the season. If rumours are to be believed, Virat and Disha might even shoot for a commercial soon.

“Their brand activity is being chalked out. If required, they will shoot for a commercial together. However, with the ongoing [IPL] series, this is not on the cards in the near future,” the source adds.

On the personal front, Disha has been clicked with her rumoured actor boyfriend Tiger Shroff on several occasions.  The duo fuelled the dating rumours after they shot their first music video together called Befikra. It would be interesting to see whether the rumoured couple will ever come out in open or will they surprise us by just being friends.
