Kesh King Releases its First Brand New Campaign After Joining the Emami Brand Basket
Kesh King , the popular Ayurvedic hair care brand of India is set to release the first ever ad film post its big ticket acquisition by the Kolkata based leading Indian FMCG Company Emami Limited. For its new television commercial, Kesh King has brought together talented duo of Bollywood under one umbrella, viz Imtiaz Ali, the famed film director of Bollywood hits like Jab We Met, Rockstar, Highwayetc , and the gorgeous Huma Qureshi of Gangs of Wasseypur, DedhIshqiya to narrate the new ad film story of Kesh King. The new TVC goes on air on the national television from mid March, 2016.
Speaking on this occasion, Ms. Priti A. Sureka, Director, Emami Limited, said, “Till now the brand Kesh King used to run mass communication messages focusing only on the functional benefits of the product. Post-acquisition of the brand, we have conducted extensive consumer research which threw up myriad moments of truth in the life of an Indian woman for her falling, damaged, dull & lifeless hair due to daily stress, improper diet, pollution, weather and many other reasons. We have found out that many women tend to suffer from low confidence, low self-esteem and even depression due to problems like excessive hair fall, premature greying and unhealthy hair quality. Basis this insight, we thought of weaving in these consumer findings in our ad story and establish Kesh King as the one stop solution for all these hair woes of women and give them back healthy lustrous hair along with their lost confidence and happiness. We believe that this new film focusing more on the consumer needs will strike a chord with our TG.”
With an aspirational look and feel, the storyline of the new Kesh King ad shows Huma as a hassled housewife complaining to her husband about her falling, lifeless and dull hair and her distress for people being indifferent to her agony of having bad hair, including her husband. As the husband introduces her to Kesh King and its benefits and helps her to manage her tousled tresses, Kesh King establishes itself as a brand that not only takes care of hair woes but also mends relations.
The business of Kesh King was acquired by Emami Limited in June 2015, marking the company’s foray in the Ayurvedic Hair & Scalp Care segment. The brand portfolio includes ayurvedic medicinal oil, herbal shampoo & conditioner and ayurvedic capsules. Kesh King is also endorsed by many other eminent film and sports personalities like Juhi Chawla, Sania Mirza and Shruti Haasan wherein the latter endorses the brand for the southern markets.
