Ruchi Soya, an edible oils manufacturer in India, has rolled out a new campaign for its brand Mahakosh. The ad film has been conceptualised by Orchard Advertising. The objective of the TVC is to highlight the importance of being fit and healthy with the brand’s positioning – “Fit hai toh Future hai.”
Madhuri Dixit plays a concerned mother in the ad film. She sees her children glued to gadgets instead of playing. The film moves on to show a mother concerned over the strain that late night studying causes on her daughter's eyes. Another set of kids are seen eating out of a spread of junk food as the mother looks alarmed. Dixit notes that since the habits of kids these days can't be altered much, the alternative is to change the cooking oil for a healthier lifestyle. The ad film, through narration, explains the ingredients in the oil that will lead to a fit and healthy body. The film ends with a product showcase and a voice over that says, 'Mahakosh refined soyabean oil. Fit hai toh future hai. (There's future if there's fitness)'
