Fortune Oils breaks stereotype; gets male brand ambassador in Akshay Kumar

https://www.indiantelevision.com/sites/default/files/styles/smartcrop_800x800/public/images/tv-images/2017/10/31/Fortune_Oils.jpg?itok=JK3JL9v_

MUMBAI: Fortune Oils has rolled out its latest campaign, but this time with a male brand ambassador. As quirky it may sound for an oil brand to have a male endorsing the brand, Fortune Oils' latest campaign unveils its brand ambassador Akshay Kumar. Taking forward the brand’s message, Fortune Oils’ latest TVC shows Akshay spending time with army jawans at a camp – drawing on his association and support for the Indian Army.

On interacting with the jawans, Akshay realises that one of the things they miss is home-cooked food. Overwhelmed and humbled by the soldiers’ sacrifice and commitment to keeping the nation safe, Akshay expresses his wish to cook for them. A different side of Akshay comes alive, something not seen before – his pre Bollywood avatar, Rajiv Bhatia. Akshay then proceeds to cook a delicious, just-like-home meal, including the army men’s favourites.

Conceived and executed by Ogilvy South, this film celebrates the idea of home cooked food and the emotional attachment we all have with it in a fresh and interesting story.

Ogilvy South Asia executive chairman and creative director Piyush Pandey said, "The film continues on the theme of 'ghar ka khana' but this time we use jawans as they are the ones who miss ghar ka khana for long extended periods away from home.”

Adani Wilmar COO Angshu Mallick added, “Fortune Oils’ communications have always been about connecting with our consumers on an emotional level. So when we were considering a brand ambassador, who better than Akshay Kumar. He is popular, likeable and relatable with people across different ages. Known to be a hardworking and conscientious person, Akshay epitomises all the values that Fortune stands for and is the perfect representative for our brand.

Ogilvy South CCO Azazul Haque points out, "The idea of choosing Akshay Kumar as a brand ambassador came from the client and we loved it. A cooking oil brand choosing a male brand ambassador was a bold and progressive decision. Also Akshay has good credibility as a food expert because of his affiliation with world famous cookery shows and his own past with the food industry."
