Shankar Mahadevan’s thrilling concert Katyaar to Kajarare was back with a bang this december. This time it was Nagpur, the Orange City! Hosted by NMC(Nagpur Municipal Corporation), the event took place at Yashwant Stadium in Dhantoli. The show was made free this time and it was a full House! A whopping audience of 40K people attended the show. Ten thousand other people had to go back because the stadium had reached its full capactiy to accomodate the audience. The whole venue was buzzing with energy and the audiences were charmed by Shankar Mahadevans’s magical voice.
One of the most visible real estate brands in Pune of today – Mantra Properties – Majestique Landmarks was not always popular. Inspite of being in the real estate sector for a while, they were not visible much. Hence, they wanted a brand face that would uplift the brand to a whole new level. They approached Bollywood diva Priyanka Chopra to be their brand face. We were nowhere in the picture until then. Priyanka Chopra suggested them to work with Saket Communications as she was aware of the Vidya Balan Campaign we had done previously.
Is it a challenge or a cakewalk to create a brand language for an already renowned and beloved brand? Well, thankfully we took it up as a challenge and turns out we nailed it! The brand we are talking about isn’t a product or a service but a person- a super famous musician, Shankar Mahadevan.
Yes, Team Saket was called upon by Shankar Mahadevan himself to manage his social media pages and create a unique brand identity for his social media presence. A daunting task if you ask us- the musical genius has a following of over 6 lakhs fans on his facebook page alone. Creating posts that would appeal to all these different people while keeping Shankar’s ethos intact was an interesting project.
One of our oldest clients then – Ranka Jewellers wanted to do something out of the box for the launch of their 6th Shorwoom on Sinhagad Road in Pune.With a strong relation of around 20 years, they knew Saket Communications would do justice to their thoughts.
The launch had to be massive! Ranka Jewellers have a rich legacy in Pune. We had to match their legacy with someone mainstream. We were looking for a face that would be universally accepted and one that would epitomize “Being Indian” to the core..who better than Vidya Balan!
