Ratnakar Rao, CEO, MAA TV said, "Having known Leo Burnett for many years and looking at the Agency's track record in promoting KBC and other big shows, the obvious choice for us was to work with them on this project. We have been working with Orchard, Leo Burnett’s entity based in Bangalore for a while now and for our latest show, the fit seemed right and it didn't take long before we signed up with them.

The team at Orchard came up with an insightful and relevant concept that connects the essence of the program's benefit with the aspiring participants of the show.  We are working with Orchard on an integrated campaign for the two phases - one to promote participant registrations and two, the viewership build up."

Neha Contractor, Branch Head and Vice President, Orchard Advertising, Bangalore added, “We are very excited about this partnership.  We have put together an extensive mass media campaign that has been designed using all media platforms like TV, newspaper, radio, hoardings, digital and social media to promote the show in every nook and corner of the state. Ratnakar himself is a veteran from the advertising world and it has been wonderful working with him in co- creating this successful campaign.”
