Sujit Patil, VP & Head of Corporate Brand & Communications, Godrej Group, said, “At the Godrej Group, we are constantly striving to cultivate a deeper engagement with our consumers and our audience. The pandemic may have made this harder than ever, but on the other hand the virtual world has opened up so many innovative avenues to build those connections that can be just as impactful. The launch of this fun web-series with seamless brand integration is an example of this. We believe the concept and storytelling will create a riveting narrative for viewers and an even more immersive Godrej L’Affaire experience in a year when they can’t attend it personally.”
The series will highlight the trials and tribulations of 2020 via its quirky narrative. It will not only leave viewers laughing but will also connect with them as every character demands payback from 2020.
'2020 payback karo’ will be the rallying cry of the plaintiffs who each have their own reasons to sue the year. But who wins? That’s the mystery of it.
