Devendra Chawla, head - private brands, Future Group said, "'Ab Din Ki Shuruvaat Sach Se' is the brand's core message that is drawn from the basic Indian values of inculcating good habits, and inspired from Sachin as an individual who stands for humility, honesty and Integrity and also the product truth and functionality of brushing teeth every morning. The product has been tested against the best brands in the country. Also, especially for this launch we have planned a 'Master Blaster Pack', which will create huge consumer excitement."
