Amit Doshi, Chief  Marketing Officer, Britannia Industries Limited, said “I am thrilled to unveil our latest marketing endeavor ‘Hungry For Gold.’ In a nation where cricket often dominates the spotlight, our aim is to ignite a fervent hunger for excellence beyond the cricket pitch. By partnering with six remarkable athletes and integrating an engaging gaming promotion, we are not only showcasing their incredible journeys but also fostering a deeper appreciation for sports like Badminton, Javelin, Steeplechase, and beyond. With our vast reach touching millions of Indian lives daily, we aspire to instil pride in every Indian and inspire a nation hungry for victory in all arenas.”

Divyanshu Singh, Chief Operating Officer, JSW Sports exclaimed, “At JSW Sports we have been pioneering the rise of emerging and non-cricket sports for close to a decade now, and we are firm believers in the power these sporting disciplines and athletes have from a marketing, advertising and public interest point of view. Britannia have been behind some of the most memorable and successful sports campaigns in the past, and Hungry For Gold – in the same vein – has all the makings of a legacy campaign. We are excited to have played our part in it, and are confident that it will be a big success.”

Pearl Alex, Creative, Talented said, “My peers in the Indian advertising industry will agree that at least a quarter each year gets devoted to campaigns around men’s cricket. Rare comes a brief that is inclusive & diverse by design, and not by retro-fit. Speaking to many Indias through the language of our collective hope has been a wonderful challenge.”
