Not only this, but the name has also changed. Let us understand what this is all about?
Parle-G started before independence
There is no dearth of fans for Parle-G biscuits, which was started before the country got independence, and this is the reason why Parle, a company which started with candy in a small factory, has today become a company worth more than Rs 17000 crore. Many brands have come and gone in this sector in the market but the dominance of Parle-G remains intact.
In the year 2011, according to Nielsen survey, Parle-G had emerged as the best selling biscuit brand in the world. The picture of a cute girl on its packet attracted everyone and it became the identity of this biscuit brand. But Parle company has shared a new image of the biscuit packet on its Instagram account, which is becoming increasingly viral and there is discussion on social media whether the Parle Girl has been replaced.

Actually, Jerwan Jebanshah had asked one of his video followers that if you met the owner of Parle, would you call him Parleser, Mr. Parleya Parle ji? In this video, the famous song ‘Ae Ji O Ji’ from Anil Kapoor’s film ‘Ram-Lakhan’ is also playing in the background.

What do you say @Bunshah ji? Let us tell you here that the company has not replaced Parle-Girl with the packets of Parle-G biscuits, but has given a humorous reply in response to the video of social media influencer Bunshah.
Who is the Parle-Girl printed on the biscuit packet?
It is noteworthy that there has been a lot of controversy regarding the girl seen on the cover of Parle-G biscuits. The names of three women have been claimed for this Parle-Girl. Among these, the names of Neeru Deshpande, Sudha Murthy and Gunjan Gandania were mentioned. However, it was made clear by Parle that this is not anyone’s real picture, but this picture was made in the 60s by a painter named Maganlal Dahiya. This girl’s face is considered to have a big role in giving recognition to Parle-G.
