Vidya Balan has replaced Rani Mukherjee as the face of the latest product range from a mosquito repellent brand.

Rani has had a long association with the company and it must come as a blow to her to lose such a lucrative assignment especially at a time when her career is stalling. It has been reported that the brand was looking for a fresh face to front their campaign and thus Rani was dropped and Vidya was picked.

Tarun Arora, VP - Sales and Marketing for the brand, confirms, "We have signed Vidya Balan as our new brand ambassador."

When it rains, it pours!
