The brand has recently released a campaign on the theme ‘Open up’, with kids dancing to the popular Bollywood song ‘Dhinka Chika’. It shows a group of executives watching the film in office, and one of them gets inspired and starts dancing to the song. The ad ends with the message of ‘Open Up. Laugh. Share. Talk’. The ad has gained popularity amongst the online community.
