Commenting on being part of the jury for Clio Awards 2015, Bhattacharya said, âI am really looking forward to judging in the Innovative and Integrated Campaign category at Clio this year. Integrated has become everybodyâs favourite category because you get to see the hands, legs, and the body of the entire campaign. For me, Clio means the best work from around the world. The fact that I am the only one from India (in this category) makes it all the more special.â
