The steel brand's campaign objective was to drive awareness of and consideration for steel wall opening solutions by highlighting top features
Strength, beauty, durability. These are the three principal qualities that consumers seek in a door, especially if that door happens to be the entrance to their house. Historically, wood has been the material of choice because it has these three sought-after attributes. In an attempt to alter behaviour in favour of steel, Tata Pravesh, a brand of doors and windows from Tata Steel, recently launched the Akela Hi Kaafi Hai (AHKH) multi-media campaign with Gajraj Rao as the brand ambassador. The objective was to drive awareness of and consideration for steel wall opening solutions by highlighting features like unmatched strength, termite and fire resistance and zero maintenance.
To add further fillip to the AHKH campaign, Wunderman Thompson South Asia has conceptualised the very first influencer film for Tata Pravesh featuring VVS Laxman. VVS was known for his inner strength and impeccable style, characteristics that are true of Tata Pravesh as well.
The film takes place in Laxman’s home. VVS talks about how, from the day he has retired, he has been on the lookout for the next great player. Someone who has the inner strength to perform even when the pitch is on fire. Someone who can play a long innings - not laboriously but with style.
Commenting on the film, P. Anand, chief, services and solutions, Tata Steel Ltd., said: “Tata Pravesh steel doors and windows with the elegance of wood, combine strength, style and durability. They are a one-stop solution to many hassles in the existing door / window offerings. The film draws a parallel between the brand and VVS Laxman who embodies the qualities of Tata Pravesh.”
Vijay Jacob Parakkal, senior VP and managing partner, Wunderman Thompson, Kolkata, added: “One can never forget Laxman’s fantastic innings at Eden Gardens and his epic partnership with Dravid. The perfect mix of grit, determination and style that characterised that partnership is echoed by Tata Pravesh, which combines the strength of steel with the elegance of wood.”
