Speaking about the promotional campaign, Avik Das Kanungo, Director – Brand and Marketing Strategy, Games24x7 said “ We are very happy to have a partner like The Script Room in conceptualising and launching this campaign. We set out to give a tribute to the game of cricket, celebrating the passion of Indian cricket lovers, and the campaign captures the sentiment extremely evocatively. We’re delighted with the initial response from all quarters, and are glad that cricket fans are enjoying yet another unique offering from My11Circle”.
Speaking about the campaign, Rajesh Ramaswamy (Ramsam), Co-Founder, The Script Room said, “It’s a very simple and fundamental thought. All of us know that India has a huge attachment and crazy following for cricket. And this love and passion often gets expressed through what is called ‘fan-giri’. The films are trying to capture this through multiple stories – deewangi for our favourite stars, and deewangi for our favourite game. We are really lucky and super delighted that Abhinay Deo came on board. Only he could’ve captured this madness in the scale and spirit that it finally came out.”
