Ads are primarily served on social media channels including YouTube, Facebook, Instagram in 6 second, 15 second and 30 second versions, and are scheduled to run on other mediums such as OTT, in-app advertising as well as ShareChat.

Jadeja added, “I grew up in a modest neighborhood surrounded by many small businesses that were an integral part of the community. I understand and recognize the importance of this helping hand in pushing you to the next level. So I’m proud to represent the value the myKinara app brings to small businesses.”

Created and produced by Lintas C:EX, the commercials were filmed in Bangalore with original background music composed to give the commercials a catchy tune.

We wanted to take a definitive position for them that is appropriate for the long term. The ad succinctly captures the entrepreneur’s struggle. Jadeja also synced well with the message we were trying to convey with her sense of humor and appropriate delivery.”
