IndiaFirst Life ropes in Sanjay Mishra for ‘#BhonduJustChill’ campaign


IndiaFirst Life Insurance Company Limited (IndiaFirst Life), promoted by Bank of Baroda and Union Bank of India has launched a new social media campaign, titled ‘#BhonduJustChill – Stress Ko Karo Kill, IndiaFirst Life & Chill’. 

The campaign plays with the catchphrase ‘Bhondu Just Chill’ adapted from a popular Hindi movie with a slight twist. Stemming from the company’s core value of “Because Life Is Full of Certainties” and its #CustomerFirst philosophy, the campaign is an endeavour to encourage investments albeit in a fun and quirky manner.

‘#BhonduJustChill – Stress Ko Karo Kill, IndiaFirst Life & Chill’ campaign features versatile Bollywood actor Sanjay Mishra. True to its brand ethos, the campaign highlights the significance of opting for life insurance, a must-have tool to ensure financial protection of family and loved ones, making it important to fortify its awareness across life stages.

As the country is embracing the new normal, the campaign conceptualised by WATConsult is rooted in the idea that your life is secured and protected with IndiaFirst Life’s insurance plans. This will ensure peace of mind for the entire family during life-changing milestones like marriage, children’s education, and retirement.

“We have a suite of 40+ products tailored to suit protection and assurance needs of customers across life stages. This campaign provides an interesting take on the fact that safeguarding our family’s needs, does not have to come at the cost of our own peace of mind,” Notani said.

Versatile actor Sanjay Mishra has been roped in for this campaign. Building on the actor’s quirky image, the brand drove home the importance of self-care and reinstated that having life insurance helps you sail through worry-free.
