The tagline “Khud Bane Ho Toh, Greenply Banta Hain’ is the underlying thought in the campaign featuring a series of two TVCs highlighting the success path of every self-made individual. For every achievement recorded on evergreen pages of memories, there are stories of disappointment, difficulties and defeat that go unremembered. The first TVC showcases the journey of a writer from humble beginnings, failures to its path of success.
