State Bank of India has launched a new multimedia campaign titled ‘#HoSaktaHai.’ The campaign – created by Rediffusion – aims to reach out to aspiring home owners with a slew of innovative solutions.


Speaking on the campaign, Dinesh Menon, Chief Marketing Officer, SBI said: “While home loan is a highly involved product category, most advertising in the category lacks adequate engagement and appeal from a communication perspective. Hence, it was important for us to not only ensure the brand story gets heard but discussed and recalled as well, amidst all the clutter and fragmented media consumption.  We are delighted at this bunch of films which have a poetic charm to them and are certainly clutter breaking.  We adopted a digital first approach and are happy to see that it has resonated well with different target audiences each piece of communication has been designed to address. We are optimistic this campaign will certainly augur well for our home loans business and stir some category conversation.’’


Added Rahul Jauhari, Joint President & Chief Creative Officer, Rediffusion: “While the intention was to be different and clutter-breaking, we focused on bringing alive the constraints faced by aspiring home buyers. Very often they don’t take the plunge because they don’t have a loan option that suits their specific challenges. It was refreshing to have the client not just demand, but also back a brave idea to the hilt.”


Said Navonil Chatterjee, Joint President & Chief Strategy Officer, Rediffusion: “This campaign is all about the strange ‘mathematics of emotion’. We are promoting something like home loans which are worth lakhs and crores, with small, inexpensive objects like dancing dolls and toy elephants that cost just a few hundred bucks! But these inanimate objects are what people dream of decorating and enlivening their new houses with. And this is where emotion trumps mathematics by loosening the purse-strings, by tugging at the heart-strings!”
