Ranbir Kapoor And Alia Bhatt Dance To The Tunes Of Smile Deke Dekho By Lay’s In A Special Musical

  • Musical part of LAY’S ongoing SmileDekeDekho campaign
  • Brings together the best from Bollywood and music industry
  • Composed by Amit Trivedi and sung by Sunidhi Chauhan and Nakash Aziz

    LAY’S releases a special musical to spread Smiles this New Year.

    PEPPY, VIVACIOUS and FOOT- TAPPING, the musical is a part of LAY’S Smile Deke Dekho campaign and features TWO OF INDIA’S BIGGEST YOUTH ICONS – RANBIR KAPOOR and ALIA BHATT for the first time together. Composed by talented Amit Trivedi, the musical has been sung by charismatic pair of Sunidhi Chauhan and Nakash Aziz. The musical follows the success of TVCs and encapsulates the brand’s mission to offer a joyful interruption to the busy, everyday lives.

    The two-and- a-half minute musical features Ranbir and Alia portraying their fun, happiness coupled with quirky expressions lived through a magical journey in a dream.  The visual opens to a bored and dull Ranbir and Alia sitting on a bench. As they move from one colorful and lively location to another, the video captures the variety of moods portrayed by India’s favorite actors and the diversity of flavors by LAY’S that are mapped to spread smiles to the busy, mundane lives.

     “With Smile Deke Dekho, LAY’S has once again established its position as a front runner in terms of innovation. The success of our campaign comes at the back of the simple insight, backed by creative conceptualization and seamless execution to bring smiles for all our consumers. The Smile Deke Dekho musical is special as it brings together India’s biggest youth icons Ranbir and Alia grooving together on the tunes of the Amit Trivedi, Sunidhi Chauhan and Nakash Aziz, a combination never seen before. The musical is curated to give everyone an opportunity to cherish, celebrate, groove and dance to the light heartedness of life. We are hoping to have India dancing to the musical as they welcome 2020.”

     “Being a youth-oriented brand, LAY’S is all about bright colours, smiles and fun with friends. Smile Deke Dekho brings out the liveliest and chirpiest versions of ourselves, reiterating that it’s important to break away from the monotonous life and indulge in the joyfulness of it. Personally, I love the lyrics of the song and the hook step and cannot wait to see the reaction of audience.”

    Ranbir Kapoor

    “There are some songs that you naturally groove to, effortlessly and seamlessly. Smile Deke Dekho is one such song that has the power to lighten up a bad mood and liven up a boring day. We had a great time shooting for the musical, dancing and jiving to it and am absolutely sure that all our audience will love to shake a leg to it as well.”

     Rohit Dhawan, Principal Partner – Content Plus, Mindshare India (North & East) 

    “We at Mindshare Content+ always endeavor to create unique brand stories that will engage and excite the consumers. The LAY’S Smile Deke Dekho campaign was carved to generate buzz, excitement and distinctiveness amongst consumers for the brand. While identifying music as a key passion point to deliver to the brand objectives was easy, the journey of creating a mix of a talent pool that could deliver to it was tricky. And that’s where the partnership with Sony Music kicked in to help us curate an exciting talent pool of Amit, Sunidhi & Nakash to create a piece of music that we believe will engage the listeners. Couple that with the music video that has been made with a novel visual appeal to spread nothing but joy and smiles – much like LAY’S.”
