Thus, Kaizzen will also be managing the promotion of Irish Higher Education Institutions in the Indian market.

On appointing the agency, Mr. Abhinav Bhatia, Director of Enterprise Ireland – India and South Asia cites, We are pleased to appoint Kaizzen as our Public Relations Consultancy to communicate our vision and help us achieve our objective. What helped Kaizzen deliver an excellent pitch was the understanding of the sector and the account.

We believe that the strong team with expert backing from the leadership will help Enterprise Ireland seamlessly manage its media communications right from planning, strategizing to execution in the Indian market.”

“Darr Haisiyat Nahi, Himmat Dekhta Hai”: Mountain Dew reiterates “Darr Ke Aage jeet Hai” philosophy in new campaign
Apr 12 2021 By Admin
  Mountain Dew has always saluted the spirit of risk taking and pushing boundaries to achieve success beyond fear & self-doubt. Continuing its efforts to inspire the youth of India to overcome their fears through gripping films, Mountain Dew® today unveiled an all-new campaign for the 2021 summer season.   The campaign reiterates the brand’s Darr Ke Aage Jeet Hai philosophy in a new way, and features Bollywood superstar and Mountain Dew brand ambassador Hrithik Roshan. “Darr Haisiyat Nahi, Himmat Dekhta Hai” is the powerful theme behind the new TVC, which encourages today’s youth to break free from social pressures and overcome their fears to achieve extraordinary success.  With this new campaign, Dew continues with its Darr ke Aage Jeet hain philosophy, building the context of the Young Striver India, who dreams and dares to win.   The film highlights Mountain Dew’s belief that one’s self-worth is only determined by the strength and courage they display, and not the material possessions they own. The film captures both the dilemma & the determination of Hrithik Roshan. It opens with Hrithik pulling up his bike near a group of professional racers. The group makes fun of the Dew hero because they believe that his bike will not be able to compete with the high-end ones, they are riding.   The race comes to an unexpected halt due to a landslide and the riders are faced with the choice of either succumbing to fear & turning back or overcoming fear & moving ahead. Despite discouragement from the other riders, Hrithik Roshan chooses to overcome his fears and take the challenge head-on. A resolute look crosses his face as he takes a sip of Mountain Dew®, rides his bike over a mountain chasm to ultimately emerges as a winner.   Speaking about his experience shooting the TVC, brand ambassador Hrithik Roshan said, “True heroes are defined by their strength and not from where they come. Mountain Dew’s story of “Dar Haisiyat Nahi, Himmat Dekhta Hai” resonates with me strongly because it in line with my belief that it is an individual’s courage in the face of fear that makes them a real hero.
