When that throaty and manly voice of Actor Kamal Hasan came out of the majestic silhouette in one of the TV advertisements, people were all spell bound. The hands clutched the TV remotes so tight to come over the chills that went down the spine. And to see someone who has never endorsed a brand before to appear in front of people for the first time is really an awe inspiring moment for anyone.
So here’s the story literally behind screens from the team !
The crew of our advertisement team was working on bringing out a new face for purchase Strattera Pothys that it actually deserves. Also that was the time when Kamal had again given a nod to the year-long pending contract of endorsing the brand. So we were doubly excited in conceptualizing the ad for the legend. The ‘all wired’ team was up with josh in casting a legend in a legendary brand.
There were so many other stores that housed silk sarees, so showing Pothys as just one of the showrooms storing finest silk sarees was something that people already knew. Then the reality really struck us all in a moment’s thought that we are not just a store that houses silk sarees and more; we are the store that people love. Yes, that rang a bell so hard that Pothys’ real face was made favourite among people. As a matter of fact, the superlative degree of favorite! So why not call it ‘People’s Pothys’?
The tamil word “abhimanam ” fits to the tee in describing how Pothys is the favourite shopping destination for people of Tamil Nadu. When we began to shoot, we were as nervous as anybody else would in shooting the “Ulaga Nayagan”. But he kept putting us in the awe box, by giving more than a hundred percent. He imbibed and assimilated the concept and the brand, and brought it out in his acting in no time. He is legendary. The absolutely-involved actor made us all scale up to get the best of an advertisement. And we showed Kamal the way no other advertisement did.
There can’t be any better way than Pothys getting endorsed by Kamal Hasan. We were equally delighted and enlightened with him around, and so were the viewers when the ad was out. And when people got to know that he donated the revenue from the ad for a social cause, the advertisement reached both eyes and hearts. We will always cherish this association and so will you. Stay tuned for more awe. And we’ll always be ‘People’s Pothys’!
