On Friday, Himatsingka apologised to Bournvita and issued a statement on Instagram, “I have decided to take down the (Bournvita) video after receiving a legal notice from one of India’s biggest law firms on 13 April. I apologise to Cadbury for making the video. I did not plan or intend to infringe any trademark or defame any company, nor do I have the interest or resources to participate in any court cases, and I request MNCs to not take this forward legally.”

The influencer in the now-deleted video introduced Bournvita’s benefits first. Later, he noted that Bournvita contains sugar, cocoa solids, an emulsifier, liquid glucose and a colour 150 degrees C (which he claimed was cancer-causing). “They have 50 grams of sugar per 100 grams. Basically, the entire half of this bag is only sugar!” he said.
