So, when the brand team approached me, I was naturally excited to be associated with this iconic brand and be able to contribute towards its growth. Bata was launching a new range of womens’ shoes that were versatile and could be worn to multiple occasions and wanted my help in crafting a jingle for this launch campaign. While writing, I made sure that the lyrics resonate with the young Indian women of today. The jingle had to be catchy and hummable and also deliver a certain attitude & confidence. That's why the refrain, Bata Nahi Toh Aur Kya? It's Got To Be Bata!”
