Mumbai: Aegis Media’s experiential marketing agency – Carat Fresh Integrated is on the roll by facilitating yet another successful brand association between Mistair-a division of Siyaram Silk Mills and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures’ next Inkaar.

The co-branded association between Viacom 18’s Inkaar and Mistair includes in-film brand placement within the movie, transit media branding, print and outdoor media branding. The exclusive launch event for ‘PowerPlay’; wherein Chitragada Singh appeared as the Showstopper was also planned and executed by Carat Fresh Integrated.
Commenting on Carat Fresh’s role in the association, Rahul Akkara, President- Marketing, Siyaram Silk Mills said, “We are pleased to be associated with Sudhir Mishra’s Inkaar.

Carat Fresh Integrated played a crucial role in bringing Mistair and Viacom 18 Motion pictures together and made this a successful event”.
Commenting on the same Rudrarup Datta- VP, Marketing and Operations, Vaicom 18 Motion Pictures said, “Inkaar is one of the most exciting films from the Viacom stable in 2013. It captures multiple facets of the urban corporate world and portrays it in an unapologetic and intrepid manner. Sudhir Mishra’s flair for handling complex subjects is at its epitome in the film. Starring one of the hottest on-screen pair Arjun Rampal and Chitrangada Singh, it has style and class embedded in every frame. Our association with Mistair and the ‘Powerplay’ range epitomizes the quintessence of the film. We would want to thank Carat Fresh for bringing this combination together.”
Inkaar is a power packed corporate drama that captures the shift in dynamics between a venerated CEO and his protégé, when power and sex adds up to the equation.

Both put together, forms a perfect brand fit and a fabulous combination for the corporate audience.
