Airtel’s new campaign ‘Udaan’ celebrates the art of storytelling

The story was recently revealed at the Jaipur lit Fest live through teleporting 3D images of the kids. With the help of technology, not only did they connect the kids to the audience, but an illustrated book on their story was also released.
