Commenting on this development Rajnish Agarwal, President, Brand Promotion, Rupa & Co Ltd. said, “We felt that we should engage a new agency which has the urge and capability to deliver something new and dynamic. And we feel scarecrow, with Manish and Raghu in place, will be able to do justice to this thought of ours. The media budget for the 5 brands combined would be in the region of Rs. 20 crores.”

Manish Bhatt, Founder Director, Scarecrow Communications, added, “We have worked on the launches of Hanes, Wonderbra in India and communication for VIP in the past.
