Explaining the objective behind the campaign, Vaishali Sharma, Head of MarComms, South Asia, BBC Global News said, “The objective of the campaign was to address the relevance of international news in India. We have reached a stage where we are not just getting influenced, but are getting affected by the international news. Even at the most basic level, people are getting affected by the news from western countries.”

She added, “Through this campaign, we are promoting our primetime slot ‘World News Today’ which is hosted by Nik Gowing.” 

The creative team includes Shriram Iyer and Jaywant Dabholkar. The film is produced by Chrome Pictures and directed by Nikhil Rao.
