In a bid to overhaul its brand image, Vicco has signed on leading matinee idol Alia Bhatt , who is also considered a strong voice of the millennials. Alias track record of successful films that have delivered stupendous results at the box office and garnered favorable reviews from critics makes her a frontrunner in multiple categories of brands with FMCG being no exception. Alia Bhatt will be representing the brands headliner product, Vicco Vajradanti and its variants, a trusted name in the personal care category. The brand has been a heavy advertiser over cinema screens reaching to captive audiences but now with Alia on board, there will be a tectonic shift in their communication and media strategies. Vicco Vajradanti will now be seen across media spectra. Talking about roping in Alia for the campaign, Mr. Sanjeev Pendharkar, Director, Vicco said, Vicco Vajradanti has been a household name since 1952. It has a large base of loyal users. The marketing task was to appeal to the younger generation, the millennials and also make a pure ayurvedic paste a part of their daily regime hence helping them with good oral health and who better than Alia as a brand ambassador to do this. Speaking about engaging with Vicco, youth icon and established actor, Alia Bhatt stated, Im really excited to be a part of this journey with Vicco. I have grown up seeing their advertisements in theatres and they are imprinted in my mind. To take on this mandate of Viccos brand overhaul is a huge responsibility because this is a brand with legacy and deeply entrenched in the market. Im all set to take the plunge. Speaking about Viccos brand overhaul with Alia Bhatt, Jyotsna Parikh, Creative HeadMumbai, Triton Communications, said, Its really exciting for a creative person to be part of a relaunch, especially when its a brand that weve grown up with and loved. The idea is simple. When teeth are happy, they sing. And the song they sing is the VICCO jingle. The jingle is the biggest asset of the brand and weve remixed it to make it young and modern. We found the perfect brand fit in Alia and were sure shell draw in the younger audience that we want to capture. This musical film will be followed by a more rational one but delivered with an Alia dose of mischievousness. Adding to Jyotsna, Virendra Saini, Business Head Mumbai, Triton Communications said,An opportunity to work on Vicco Vajradanti is a dream come true and a privilege. Years have passed but this brand has never compromised on its quality of being pure Ayurveda and in a time when so much of chemicals are being consumed which are harmful to the body, the millennials of today need to connect with this trusted ayurvedic brand for their oral hygiene. The idea was to build on the famous brand jingle by modernising it and making it stick with the youth of today. While the campaign breaks with TV, cinema spots and print campaigns running parallel, the digital content will be staggered all through the first quarter of the calendar year 2020. Vicco will also use Alias image in product containers and packaging through 2020.
