The campaign kickstarted with a promo called #DearLove, which was an open letter to love. It encapsulated numerous things which the youth wanted to tell, ask or even express their confusion to #DearLove. The promo had the exact amount of emotional sentiment, confusion and thus sparked a conversation among Youth. The promo was showcased extensively on TV (across Zee Network) and on digital mediums.
