Join Coca-Cola, as it continues to urge people to spread happiness through its latest summer campaign, âBewajah Khushiyan Lutao, Coca-Cola Pilaoâ.

To ensure that the message of happiness and optimism percolates down to the target audience, Coca-Cola has roped in the sweethearts of the nation and popular youth icons from âStudent of The Yearâ, Alia Bhatt, Varun Dhawan and Siddharth Malhotra. They will spread happiness in their youthful, infectious manner, brightening up someoneâs day, by simply sharing a bottle of Coca-Cola.

Speaking about the campaign, Anupama Ahluwalia, Vice President, Marketing, Coca-Cola India and South West Asia, says, âBrand Coca-Cola has been at the forefront in making a cultural point of view that encourages optimism and positivity in our everyday lives. This summer, the âBewajahKhushiyanLutao, Coca-Cola Pilaoâ campaign inspires everyone to spread and share happiness without any reason, through little gestures like sharing an ice cold bottle of Coca-Cola. We hope that the new Coca-Cola Campaign serves as the thought starter, the trigger which encourages people to undertake simple acts of kindness towards others.â
The TVC highlights the everyday situations where one can spread happiness just by undertaking simple gestures. The genuine and spontaneous moments of happiness experienced by the giver and receiver are the highlight of the ad. Coca-Cola opens Happiness by celebrating these moments in our everyday life where we can be crazy, buy a Coca-Cola and spread happiness to unknown people.
Commenting on the Campaign, Prasoon Joshi, CEO and Chief Creative Officer, McCann World Group India says, âTake one of the worldâs most loved brands and team it with the young and vibrant stars of Bollywood, along with some peppy, foot tapping music.Â Thatâs how we made the latest Coca-Cola campaign. The whole idea of the campaign was to take the âCrazy for Happinessâ theme to the individual level, with a call to action. The emotions of togetherness and celebration, energized by a bottle ofÂ Â Â Â Â Â Coca-Cola, are very real and identifiable, and we are sure that everyone will connect to this.â
