Bangalore: Flipkart, India’s leading e-commerce marketplace, has unveiled its star-studded advertising campaign ahead of the much-awaited Big Billion Days. Said to be the biggest event till date, Flipkart has collaborated with celebrities and influencers across the spectrum to reach out to and engage with a diverse set of consumers. Donning the hats of a policeman, journalist, politician and the likes, India’s most-loved celebrities Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, Dulquer Salman, Mahesh Babu and Puneeth Rajkumar will be seen in engaging avatars that consumers can completely relate to.

In a series of ads across television, radio and digital platforms, some of  India’s most-loved celebrities will bring alive the central theme of India preparing for The Big Billion Days. Across platforms, the campaign, conceived by Lowe Lintas, will reach out to over 300 million consumers in over 100 cities through 100+ television commercials, 3 million digital assets and strategic collaborations with various digital platforms. To take the celebrity engagements a notch higher, Flipkart has also collaborated with hip hop icon Badshah, to create an exclusive anthem, which will be available to listeners across leading music channels and platforms.

Speaking about this unique campaign, Vikas Gupta, Vice President and Head of Marketing at Flipkart, said, “As a homegrown company, we understand the pulse of India’s diverse consumers and aim to engage with them at every touch point, thereby building an ecosystem. With an integrated and inclusive approach to our latest campaign, we are collaborating with a special set of celebrities and influencers, who we believe will drive more people to our platform and enable them to experience The Big Billion Days. Each celebrity will be seen in a unique avatar which we believe will connect well with our consumers across the country, as we bring Bharat and India closer this festive season.”

Sagar Kapoor, Chief Creative Officer, Lowe Lintas said, “For this year's shopping carnival, Big Billion Days, we used celebrities in a different manner. They are all protagonists in their respective stories who are so excited about the sale that they are all preparing for it well in advance. It's a humorous take where they are mirroring the excitement of the consumer that this online shopping event creates in the country."

To support its goal of driving and sustaining more users this festive season, Flipkart has recently introduced a simplified Hindi user interface, a unique rewards system, credit-backed payments system and also offers the widest selection of brands and products across categories.
