Welcoming the alliance, Jayaraj Shanmugam, Chief Commercial Officer, Jet Airways, stated: "The partnership with Tumhari Sulu marks a great start to an exciting new journey that will help us to promote Jet Airways’ well-differentiated product and service offerings in innovative ways, via the silver screen, for both the Indian and global audience.”

Explaining the synergy behind the association, Belson Coutinho, Vice President – Marketing, Ecommerce and Innovations, Jet Airways, said, “Tumhari Sulu adopts a fresh and highly-engaging perspective about listening to one’s inner calling and then stepping out in the world to realise those aspirations. The movie’s inspirational messaging is in sync with the values we hold and promote at Jet Airways including, using every opportunity to go beyond one’s abilities and having a passion for excellence in one’s job. Vidya effortlessly portrays the everyday trials of the archetypical Indian woman, who not only balances her family’s life on one hand but also nurtures her private dreams on the other. We are confident that the inspirational narrative will strongly resonate with movie goers including contemporary women, a significant number of whom travel with us.”
