You have to keep challenging yourself and look for new ways to stay relevant. If you’re in the business of filmmaking, you have to embrace technology and make the most out of it. The Airtel commercial brought an opportunity for us to experiment and reinvent as ad filmmakers. We are extremely thankful to the actors, their families, and home support for their cooperation in filming this commercial amidst the lockdown.”
