Lodha Group ropes in Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna as its new brand ambassadors

Lodha Group, India’s leading real estate developer, has roped in celebrity couple Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna as the brand ambassadors for its new landmark neighbourhood ‘Amara’. As part of a new advertisement campaign, the couple will be seen together for the first time endorsing a real estate project in India.  

 The lush green landscape of Amara comprises of smart sized 1, 2 and 3 bedroom residences housed in 27-30 storied elegant towers, and 85% of space left open. On account of large open spaces, car free concept and 1000s of existing trees, the air quality in this neighbourhood (AQI of less than 75) is far better than any other city in India (including Mumbai) and almost at par with leading cities like New York and London. The name, Amara is derived from the Sanskrit word ‘Amar’ meaning ‘eternal’ – the neighbourhood has been designed to meet the eternal desire of humans to have the choice to pursue what they desire and have maximum happiness and contentment.

 During its pre-launch, Lodha Group witnessed an unprecedented sales of over 2000 homes worth INR 1600 crore and within the first weekend of launch, another 300 units have been sold. These sales are record-breaking and reflective of the strong demand for high quality housing in the Mumbai region.

 Speaking on the development, Kumar said, “I am delighted to be associated with Lodha Group on this new and innovative project, because it’s so refreshing to find such a forward looking developer that chose to build a society in a city without harming any nature. Instead of building a concrete jungle, Lodha has brought to us a luxurious nature filled neighbourhood fit for anything...What more could a family wish for than a nature linked lifestyle with the city at ones feet... Amara simply lets you Do More, Live More.”

 On being asked how Amara falls into the evolution of Mumbai as a megapolis, Khanna added, “This city has been growing at a very rapid pace and it is always nice to see lifestyles that allow you to stop and smell the proverbial roses. Time to reflect and spaces that allow you to do so are both a need and a great luxury. Every day in this neighbourhood, you have the opportunity to relax and re-energise. Amara is a big step in that direction.”

Unveiling Amara, Prashant Bindal, Chief Sales Officer (CSO), Lodha Group, said, “Over the years, Thane as a location has grown tremendously to create its mark today and it has become a booming commercial and residential hub due to the influx of business centers and other key developments. The robust demand generated by this neighbourhood, is proof that there will be a mass exodus of employable populace to Thane in the coming years. Moreover, branded urban neighbourhoods are a rare phenomenon in Mumbai, and a lush and verdant neighbourhood is even rarer in the city. In this backdrop, Amara has received an encouraging response in the pre-launch stage with over 3000 booking applications. This neighbourhood has not only created super normal demand in a highly competitive market such as Thane but also revived its real estate landscape by reinforcing people’s trust towards appreciation and investment in real estate.”
