DDB Mudra launches new multimedia campaign for Pan Bahar featuring Saif Ali Khan

Pan Bahar has launched Pan Bahar Crystal and ventured in the ultra-premium segment with the launch. The brand has a strong foothold amongst consumers with products such as Pan Bahar, Begum, Dilruba, Wah and Natkhat.

The defining taste of this product is induced by the handpicked Supari (Beetelnut) from Shimoga, rarest attars (essence) from Kannauj and Odisha, exquisitely filtered Catechu-an extract of Acacia, Kochi's aromatic Cardamom and Mysore's famed Sandalwood oil, infused with 100% edible gold and silver leaves.

The launch of Pan Bahar Crystal gave the company a great opportunity to reposition their flagship brand. Thus, a multi-media campaign with the new positioning 'Pehchan Kaamyabi Ki' (Identity of Success) was launched with Saif Ali Khan as the brand ambassador.

Spread across print, television and digital, the brand has come up with interesting strategies to promote the campaign and to introduce Pan Bahar Crystal to its loyalists. The recently launched ad film featuring Bollywood actor Saif Ali Khan is being hugely publicized on the brand’s social pages. Pan Bahar also ran an online contest in connection to the ad film.

Vandana Das, President, DDB Mudra North, said, "The objective of the campaign was to establish Pan Bahar as a brand with a unique and aspirational identity that consumers could easily symbolize with success. The brand category to which Pan Bahar belongs to is largely driven by loyalty and hence great emphasis has been laid on using success and achievement- aspirational tone of communication."

Sambit Mohanty, Creative Head, DDB Mudra North quoted, "In challenging times, a person needs anchors that help him take a unique identity and make a personality statement. But for some people, their achievements are their identity - they don’t need to shout out loud that they've 'arrived'. Their achievements do it for them. This is the thought that we used while crafting this campaign."

Akhil Jain, CEO, Pan Bahaar said "Pan Bahar as a brand has continually set benchmarks in the industry by delivering excellence through innovation of process and uniformity of taste, in our product offerings. The campaign has given a great emphasis on having arrived in life, success & achievement- aspirational tonality. It’s all about making a life-style statement."
