Sharing his excitement about the wins, Dheeraj Sinha, Chief Strategy Officer, Leo Burnett, South Asia said, “Our work for Amazon has emanated from truly Indian insight of seeking more choices whether it’s the process of selecting a groom through arranged marriage or buying consumer products. The campaign has helped Amazon, a, build local familiarity and connect.


The work on Bajaj V stands out because the marketing idea is embedded in the product. The bike is a symbol of pride for the youth of the country, especially in a context when so much is under question in the country. And it’s not just an ad campaign, it’s a real product. That’s what makes it stand out.”
