Ranbir Kapoor stars as romantic rainmaker for Asian Paints

Watch the ad film conceptualised by Ogilvy & Mather here

Asian Paints has rolled out a film for its UltimaProtek range of waterproof paint. The film has been conceptualised by Ogilvy & Mather and features Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor.
 
The film opens at a wedding function. The bride's family is dressed in raincoats, as they welcome the groom's family. The father of the bride urges his family members to rush up, citing the possibility of 'someone' returning to ruin the proceedings. Kapoor enters, playing the role of a classical musician. The bride's father seems more worried, and urges everyone to hurry up further. Kapoor through his classical music is calling for the rain, to ruin the wedding and the house. The rain arrives, causes havoc and makes sure, that the girl's marriage is called off. This makes the bride's father give into Kapoor and his daughter's wish, by allowing the girl to get married to him. The girl rushes to Kapoor, and the film ends with the rain stopping, and the scene sunny again. The film ends with Asian Paints UltimaProtek introduced. 
 
Sukesh Kumar Nayak, executive creative director, Ogilvy Mumbai, said, "We had a lot of fun working on this brief. The fun and the madness is quite evident in the work. I must thank Prasoon Pandey for making this commercial come alive. My team and I are looking forward to execute the other surround ideas on the same platform."
 
Along with this TVC, the campaign also has POS, OOH, press and digital legs.
