India's stem cell bank LifeCell has rolled out the second phase of its national campaign by releasing a TV commercial featuring Bollywood actor and brand ambassador Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The 'Godh Bharai' film was conceptualised by 1pointsize and produced by Apostrophe Films.

LifeCell and Aishwarya urge mothers to give their babies The GiftMayur Abhaya, MD and CEO, LifeCell International, said, "LifeCell has democratized umbilical cord stem cell banking by making it accessible to all. To get across our message to millions of mothers-to-be in Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities, we needed a national figure that every woman looks up to. The decision to get Aishwarya Rai Bachchan on board to endorse our product and brand was taken keeping in mind this larger consideration. Being a trusted name synonymous with class and credibility, we are sure that her words will carry even more weight among our target group."

"Our campaign is centered round the theme of giving the gift of lifetime protection to new born babies. The theme resonated well with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as she's personally experienced the power of preserving the umbilical cord stem cells with someone like LifeCell. So we thought it would be better if Aishwarya shares the gift of protection with every mother-to-be than just do a mere testimonial," said Ravi Shankar, Chief Marketing Officer, LifeCell.

Sharad Haksar, CEO, 1pointsize, said, "Godh Bharai is a special occasion in India. It's the ceremony that marks the beginning of celebrations to welcome the newborn into the family. The ceremony might have different names in different parts of our country but in essence it's about blessing the pregnant mom with good wishes and gifts. Instead of giving just another gift that loses its charm in a few months, what if you give a present that has a lasting effect on the child's health and future? That was the premise of our commercial. Aishwarya as the brand spokesperson delivers this very message. We're positive that the commercial will strike a chord."
