Mumbai: SUGAR Cosmetics – one of the fastest-growing premium beauty brands of the country launched their latest campaign coined as #BoldAndFree (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5RiQXOnqAM) featuring actress, Taapsee Pannu on Wednesday, 22nd September.
With Bollywood actress Taapsee Pannu as the face of the campaign, it is off to an aggressive start with both simultaneous launches on television, print, and OOH. This will be further amplified across various mainstream digital and social media channels. The OOH campaign will go live in PAN India including metro cities and major Tier I & II cities. The TV Commercial will be aired nationwide in 8 languages including Hindi, English, Marathi, Bengali, Kannada, Malayalam, Tamil, and Telugu across all prime electronic channels. Taapsee has also made the official announcement on her Instagram profile as she posted the TVC.
With over a decade of experience working in Hindi, Telugu, and Tamil-language films, Taapsee is known for a wide variety of powerful roles that she has portrayed in women-centric films such as Haseen Dilruba, Thappad, Badla, Pink, and Manmarziyaan among others.
SUGAR Cosmetics’ #SUGARxTaapsee #BoldAndFree Campaign is a celebration of the brand’s philosophy of empowering women to look beyond societal approvals and be comfortable, confident & bold in their own skin. The narrative of the TV Commercial plays on how we always subconsciously keep seeing ourselves in the mirror and are conscious of how we look. This need for approval – be it that of society or even the mirror we look into – always makes us second-guess how beautiful we “feel” – and this needs to change. With this campaign, SUGAR urges its patrons and viewers to break free from that urge of getting approvals to feel and look good because one does not need the validation of a mirror of society to feel beautiful and complete.
While Taapsee stunningly brings forth this thought in the TVC, the OOH campaign helps create more opportunities for the brand’s messaging to be absorbed and create a larger impact on the audience.
Speaking on this campaign collaboration, Taapsee Pannu said, “I love how SUGAR is a bold, aspirational yet accessible brand that caters to vivacious, independent women, creating a varied range of faces, eyes, lips, and skin products to suit all skin colors and types. Working in Bollywood, it is very important to be versatile, to be able to take on any character with ease and SUGAR Cosmetics is that versatile hero in the beauty industry! Just as I take on various characters in my movies, SUGAR’s products are designed to take on and suit every Indian skin tone making the wearer look beautiful and confident in her own skin. My absolute favorite is the SUGAR lipsticks – love how every color suits & vibes with the real me. So, if you’re looking for long-lasting beauty products to keep up with the unstoppable you and your on-the-go lifestyle, just try SUGAR Cosmetics!”

When we look at Taapsee, we see someone who is self-made – with the same bold, cheerful and fearless attitude that SUGAR resonates with.
