Earlier Neeraj Chopra, Rahul Dravid and Venkatesh Prasad’s Ad Gained Fame
Only few days ago, a commercial starring Neeraj Chopra was launched, and it promptly went popular on social media. Rahul Dravid also gained attention earlier this year when he performed “Indiranagar Ka Goonda” in a brand commercial, whereas Venkatesh Prasad displayed his singing talent as the lead singer in the boy band “Vengaboys.”
The strategy for these ads’ popularity was clear and simple: reveal a personality of the sportsman that has never been seen before, and it will draw public’s attention! Adopting the same tried-and-true strategy, the fintech company has crafted yet another interesting commercial, this time starring Kapil Dev, the legendary Indian World Cup-winning captain.
