‘Babuji’ is Manthan face for north India

MUMBAI: Bollywood’s sanskaari ‘Babuji’ Alok Nath is the new face of Zedblack’s Manthan Dhoop.

Manthan is a dhoop (incense) brand from the house of Mysore Deep Perfumery House (MDPH), one of the top three companies in Rs 60-billion overall agarbatti market in India, the top two being ITC and Cycle Agarbatti in the organised sector. 

Manthan has launched its campaign "Manthan Zaroori Hai" featuring the actor where he urges people to introspect into their detached lifestyles. The campaign has been conceptualised and executed by Oberoi IBC.

Manthan Dhoop, with seven variants – Chandan, Gulab, Mogra, Guggal, Loban, Gold and Silver, claims to give a spiritual atmosphere at home, office or any other work place.

MDPH director Anshul Agarwal said: “MDPH wants to fortify its position as one of the top incense stick manufacturers in India. We recently signed former Indian captain MS Dhoni as our national brand ambassador for Zed Black. For regional markets, we have (actor) Bhagyashree for the west, and Odia superstar Barsha Priyadarshini for the east India market."





"In the north India market, Manthan is popular.  To further strengthen the brand proposition, we have made Alok Nath the face," he added.

Being one of the major players in the Rs 25-billion organised agarbatti sector, he said: “We are setting up one more state-of-the-art factory at Indore (MP) which is about 2 lac sq. ft. -- which will be operational by January 2018. This would increase our production capacity by 40 per cent."

Alok Nath shares, “Today, despite staying in the same house, we see families are drifting away and stay detached because of over-usage of mobile phones." 'Manthan Zaroori Hai' portrayed in the TVC shows that work-life balance leads you into a a happy state of mind,” he added.


Oberoi IBC MD Anand Oberoi said: "Manthan Dhoop urges people to introspect their way of living. The campaign, consisting of three TVC spots, will be aired across both, mainline and digital media."
