Birla Sun Life campaign gets over three million views on YouTube

NEW DELHI: ‘Khud ko kar buland’, a short film for Birla Sun Life Insurance’s latest campaign, has garnered over three million views on YouTube within three weeks of being posted.


The three and a half minute film by Taproot India tells the story of a single father as he deals with unpredictability of life. His journey begins at the doctor’s office where he is informed of his son’s autism, and how he grapples with life’s various setbacks while managing the family’s finances.


The film ends with a voice-over that says, “Honi ko aap rok nahi sakte. Par honi bhi aap ko kahaan roh sakegi. Apno ko, apne sapno ko karo surakshit.” (You can’t control the inevitable, but the inevitable can’t control you either. Protect yourself and your dreams)


Aditya Birla Group CMO – financial services Ajay Kakar said, “BSLI through this campaign takes the lead in defining the invaluable role that life insurance can play in all our lives. But going beyond that, we urge mass India to stand tall against adversity. We believe there are two kinds of people in the world – those who succumb to life’s uncertainties, and those who take it in their stride. We must be the only authors of our own life stories -Khud Ko Kar Buland,”


Kakar added, “Nothing can come in the way of those who stand prepared against all odds. Life insurance helps safeguard your family and you from the uncertainties of life. In keeping with our marketing mission across all businesses at ABFSG to be an agent provocateur in low penetration categories, we have gone a step ahead to reposition the fragmented perception of the life insurance category, in the minds of mass India.”


Taproot India chief creative officer Agnello Dias said, “Insurance communication usually harps on how vulnerable we are in the face of destiny. Never about how strong the human spirit can be. By emotionally empowering one to stay resilient in the face of whatever is in store is a bold, powerful stance by BSLI."


Taproot’s senior creative director Pallavi Chakravarti added, “Look around. See if you can spot a single person who has never faced uncertainty. It’s a given. We don’t know what form it will take – but if one believes that tomorrow will be better, and acts on that belief by safeguarding one’s dreams, then there is little destiny can do. And that is the stand BSLI has taken.”
