Having procured the rights for the recent Oscar-winning number, “Jai Ho”, the Congress Party has unveiled its latest communication drive, conceptualized and created by various arms of Percept.
“After procuring the music rights for the song, the challenge was to get the concept written and visualized dramatically so as to convey and cover all key communication objectives that the party planned to take to the Aam Aadmi,” said Harindra Singh, vice chairman and managing director, Percept Limited. “The next challenge was to ensure that the lyrics fitted into the music and highlighted the new 2009 Congress slogan for the elections ‘Aam Aadmi ke Badte Kadam, Har Kadam Par Bharat Buland’.”
