CarDekho group onboards Rahul Dravid as Brand Ambassador, launches ‘The everyday hero’ campaign


CarDekho, has launched its newest TV campaigns ‘The everyday hero’ championing the cause of personal mobility.

As people have got accustomed to the new normal after the Covid-induced lockdown, there is a growing preference for personal mobility. An owner driven car offers a more controlled environment and limited exposure to the outside world.

The new campaigns created by Leo Burnett India reiterates this by showing how a vehicle keeps a frontline worker safe as he responds to the call of duty and at the same time provide peace of mind to his family members. CarDekho aims to partner in people’s journey towards personal mobility.

The film depicts a safe commute for all those who are leaving the safe haven of their homes for duty. It is a heart-warming story depicting a retired doctor who decides to resume his duty against the wishes of his family.

The family soon realizes that while they cannot challenge the doctor’s invincible spirit; they can definitely help him stay safe by buying him a car that limits his exposure to public transport thereby underlining the message of safety and security. The new campaign will be released across digital and electronic media. This will be followed by a festive campaign, which will further showcase the brand offerings.

The film captures how the frontline worker, be it a doctor, police or delivery support perform their duties in such trying times with their trusted two-wheelers partner. At BikeDekho, consumers can compare the prices, get expert reviews about the bikes and avail best offers and discounts, thus making them the trusted personal mobility partner in their journey.

Furthering its aim to become country’s trusted personal mobility partner, CarDekho has associated with Rahul Dravid, legendary former Indian cricketer and captain. Also known as The Wall, Rahul Dravid will testify the ease and simplicity of buying a new car through CarDekho. Consumers can compare cars, check expert reviews, and get best offers, suitable to their preference. The teaser is live on Hotstar and the campaign is all set to be launched during the week of Diwali.
