Of course the KFC Bucket is not just to be appreciated for the way weird musicians use it as head gear. It happens to be a very recognizable attribute of the company. The launching ceremony at the Gulshan Branch was celebrated with gusto and quite a few balloons with actress Tinni and actor Hillol gracing the ceremony wearing KFC T-shirts. At the launch both husband and wife exchanged pleasantries along with Akku Chowdhury, Executive Director of Transcom Foods Ltd with the gathered press.
The Bucket will be available from now at all outlets of KFC in the city.
