With this collaboration, I am absolutely confident that our partnership will be mutually beneficial in ensuring our continued success while keeping our customer interests centre-stage. With this, I would like to extend a warm welcome to Abhishek.”

Addressing the gathering, actor Abhishek Bachchan said, “I am honoured to be an ambassador for a truly global brand synonymous with quality, innovation and style. Helping India get more and more connected with Motorola phones is my mission for the next 24 months. It is amazing to see how we as a nation have adopted this technology and today it is pervading every sphere of our lives. Speaking for myself, I am a complete techno-geek and rely on these gadgets to keep myself organized. I absolutely love the Motorola products.

They are really cool and stylish while offering the best applications. I am excited about making the difference, Right here! Right now!!”

After unveiling the MOTOSTAR, Motorola announced the winners of the contest “Guess the MOTOSTAR” which was a lead up to the brand ambassador launch.
