Tata Tea Gold has announced one of the first-ever industry collaboration leveraging online streaming and eCommerce platform through a pioneering partnership with Amazon (Prime Video and Amazon.in).

Tata Tea Gold will be the exclusive beverage partner of the movie Shakuntala Devi, being released on 31st July on Prime Video.

Shakuntala Devi is a real-life story inspired by famous Indian mathematician and played by versatile actor Vidya Balan. The brand film's narrative of Dil Ki Suno talks about the protagonist listening to her heart, breaking traditional stereotypes, and eventually becoming a household name by pursuing her unique talent.

In a bid to celebrate the #DilKiSuno story of India's human computer Shakuntala Devi, Tata Tea Gold will kick off the campaign with co-branded creatives on Amazon.in, before launching a 360° media campaign on TV, digital and social media across all key markets.

Speaking about this association, Puneet Das, Vice President Marketing, Beverages- India, TATA Consumer Products, said, “Tata Tea Gold has been bringing alive it's 'Dil ko naa kahoge to pacchtaoge' positioning through pop culture stories of people who have listened to their hearts and pursued their own passion. The movie will bring alive Shakuntla Devi's journey to the audience and her story will not only help in propagating the proposition of 'Dil ki Suno' but will hopefully inspire several others to tap into their inner voice and pursue their own dreams. Hence, there is a great resonance and synergy between the brand and the movie.

“What makes this association even more special is the relevance of the platforms in recent times. OTT /Online streaming consumption has been steadily increasing. Hence, this partnership is truly unique in a sense that this will help in driving brand recall through Prime video movie partnership and complete the consumer journey for Tata Tea Gold, with association on Amazon.in. This is a clear instance of how 'digital disruption' is shaping up new customer experiences and how as a brand Tata Tea Gold is innovating to stay ahead in these changing times.”

If that opportunity comes on the back of two of the latest trends -- the surge in E-commerce and OTT -- it makes it even more exciting.

Through Shakuntala Devi's incredible following-her-heart story, Tata Tea Gold's proposition of Dil Ki Suno comes alive, while our partnership with Amazon Prime on the back of the movie, helps us meet the brand's business goals leveraging both the OTT and e-com platforms.”
