“Life insurance is at an inflection point in India. There is an opportunity to redefine the role that this industry can play today. At Birla Life Insurance, we choose a strategy to bring out to the masses in India what insurance can do. With Taproot India, we have found a agency that not only guides and partners with us in the creative expression of our brand, but more importantly, also strategises for the way forward,” said Ajay Kakar, Chief Marketing Officer – Financial Services, Aditya Birla Group.

JWT India’s recent campaigns for the brand included, the one celebrating Yuvraj Singh’s return to the Indian cricket team and the popular campaign ‘Jab tak balla chal raha hai, thaat hai, Jab balla nahin chalega’, which drew upon the star power of Yuvraj Singh and his real life experience of beating cancer.

As its communication partner, we look forward to making the brand even more relevant to consumers than it is,” said Agnello Dias, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Taproot India.
