Mahindra Group Chairman Anand Mahindra on Friday shared an example of Indian marketing ingenuity. In a post on X, Mahindra said that he came across a Burger joint in the city of Udaipur which is called 'Burger Singh' and here's what he wrote:

"In Udaipur. I’m no longer surprised by examples of Indian marketing ingenuity. But this one enters the Hall of Fame!" This seems to be a clever reference to the famous burger franchise - Burger King.

Many of Anand Mahindra's followers were quick to point out that Burger Singh is a popular burger chain and has many outlets across the country. Here are some of the responses he received on social media platform X:
