MUMBAI: Gionee clocks 1.20 cr customers in India and announced ace cricketer and the captain of the Indian Cricket Team Virat Kohli as their new brand ambassador.

Kohli will soon be seen in the upcoming campaign of Gionee, and will also be actively involved in a host of innovative marketing and customer experience initiatives of the brand. Gionee had roped in actor Alia Bhatt as it’s brand ambassador a few months ago and he is joining her in helping the brand touch new heights.

The company grew twice as much as the last fiscal year and has ambitious targets for this year as well. It undertook several strategic steps in recent times to further consolidate it’s position. It rolled out a global re-branding exercise with a new logo and tagline, “Make Smiles” along with signing on an MoU to put up it’s own manufacturing unit in India.

The association with Virat Kohli will further enable the brand to carry forward it’s high decibel visibility and connect.

On the partnership, Gionee India country CEO and MD Arvind.R Vohra said “ India is one of the fastest growing young economies in the world and Gionee takes immense pride in having India’s biggest youth icons Virat Kohli and Alia Bhatt as its brand endorsers. With the two of the most loved icons in India our motto of Making Smiles is bound to create a new benchmark across billions of young hearts.”

On the association, Kohli said “I play my game with dignity and passion and apply the same rule in choosing my partnerships. Gionee comes across as a brand that is fueled by passion, determination and focus to innovate and perform and with all of this have it’s heart in the right place by giving back to society. Thus, I feel and believe that this association will go a long way. I am very excited to start this journey with Gionee.”
