MakeMyTrip ropes in Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt be the new brand ambassadors

MakeMyTrip has announced that it has signed up with Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt to be the company’s new brand ambassadors. With its target audience getting younger, the company has signed up the duo with the aim to strengthen the brand’s appeal, stature and recall amongst its audience in tier 1 towns and cities across the country, especially the youth. The move is in line with the company’s business strategy focusing on hyper aggressive growth and new user acquisition; thus driving growth for the travel industry at large.

Speaking on the signing, Saujanya Shrivastava, Chief Marketing Officer, MakeMyTrip said, “Makemytrip aims to inspire and enable the restless wanderlust in every person's heart. And as the brand injects new energy into its ambitions, there is a raring-to-go spirit that it has started to spread. On that journey, taking on two key protagonists to represent this spirit of wanderlust is a key step.

She added, “Like the brand, both Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt represent the new age of Indians - confident, bold, and unafraid to try new things. In their cinematic journey too they are experimentative, have fun in whatever they do and give everything its maximum due. Like true travelers who push forth on their travel ambitions, their persona is incredibly inspirational. It’s a great fit with the brand, which we hope can inspire more of India to travel.”

The duo will be engaged in soon to be launched high-decibel campaign that will have high visibility and impactful presence across mediums and will be supported by digital and on-ground marketing activations.
