This World Heart Day, Saffolalife, an initiative from Saffola, is bringing together the largest media houses to further the cause of preventive heart care in India.  For the first time in the history of Indian television, Saffola has united the favourite stars of competitors STAR Plus, Colors & Zee TV in a brand new TVC that urges everyone to find your heart’s age through the Saffolalife “Heart Age Finder” Tool and celebrate their heart’s birthday.

In addition, with another pioneering initiative, Saffolalife and Times of India are gifting readers in Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore a free copy of The Times of India as a gift for their heart. This special gift has a delightful and novel way of actually experiencing a birthday celebration and watching print come wonderfully alive on one’s mobile phone.

With the launch of the new TVC, Saffolalife is taking your heart’s birthday celebrations to the silver screen. Bringing together our favorite Pratigya & Krishna, Priyanka & Shaili Bhabhi, Anandi & Simar and many more, the TVC raises awareness about the fact that even though we celebrate the birthday of our favorite stars, we often forget the one who is the most important: one’s own heart. These stars from the rival channels Star Plus, Colors and Zee TV have united with Saffolalife on a common platform for a common concern: to highlight the importance of preventive heart care in a light and heart-warming manner.

Commenting on the TVCs, Mr Abhinav Tripathi, Senior Creative Director, McCann Erickson Mumbai, said, “Everybody loves a surprise. So when it comes to your heart’s birthday, what better way to wish it? Which is why on World Heart Day we decided to gift it a Times Of India. Absolutely free, loaded with wonderful presents, compliments of TOI and Saffolalife.  From the first page on, every page will hold a special surprise, including an ad that literally comes to life in front of your eyes. And the rest of the gifts, well, why don’t we let your heart decide”

Sushma Jhaveri, COO, Madison Media Infinity, said, “The key to any Impactful innovation is extending the creative idea seamlessly in media.  Saffolalife’s World Heart Day partnership with leading TV channels and The Times of India, succeed in doing this effortlessly by breaking through clutter to increase noticeability and enhancing Impact for the cause.”

As India’s young population faces the highest risk of cardio-vascular diseases (CVDs), Saffolalife continues to work on its mission to bring down the incidence of CVDs across India. This World Heart Day, these two path-breaking initiatives by Saffolalife have united the media fraternity on the serious cause of heart health. With the aim to raise tremendous awareness on the importance of preventive heart care, Saffolalife is conveying a serious message in a manner that people will embrace and engage with.
