Lenskart disclosed that Bhuvan’s digital content appeals to the youth and aligns with their brand image. So to expand their reach and extend their products and services to a larger audience, Lenskart signed Bhuvan on board as ambassador.
The association of Lenskart with Bhuvan came about with a mutual love for eyewear and to bring to light how an accessory like glasses can change the appearance of a person and make them have a distinct personality like that of a nerd, a corporate or even any of the characters that Bhuvan plays on his YouTube channel.

Keeping in mind Bhuvan’s multi-faceted talented persona, the brand is keen on introducing numerous campaigns and launches for various channels of media. Being the creative influencer that he is, Bhuvan will also be producing exclusive content for Lenskart.
Part of the Lenskart app’s interface is a special section called #BBkeFrames that consists of a collection of frames inspired by Bhuvan’s personal style, handpicked by him. This feature is also available on the M-site, website as well as in stores.

Commenting on why Bhuvan as brand ambassador for Lenskart Peyush Bansal, Founder and CEO, Lenskart.com opined, “Bhuvan is a youth icon and he appeals to the audience we’re looking at targeting. Lenskart believes in challenging the status-quo whether it’s in the kind of products or the services it offers the customers. Bhuvan himself is a game changer in his own line of work and that is why we think it’s the perfect association. We’re looking forward to working and creating fun campaigns with him”.

Like for Banchod Das, the character wears these shield black frames. Lenskart has been my one stop shop for all my eyewear requirements and I’m really excited to be a part of the Lenskart family because it also aligns with my mantra and that is having fun with what you do.”
