Mumbai, India – Local-based full-on independent marketing company IdeateLabs has successfully aided the launch of its latest projects: a new over-the-top (OTT) service Planet Marathi OTT, the first OTT service catered to the Marathi-speaking people in India.
IdeateLabs, India’s leading independent full-service marketing company, aided the launch of Planet Marathi OTT, the world’s first Marathi OTT, earlier last week, in an event inaugurated by Madhuri Dixit Nene, a well-known Indian actress.
Renowned artists from the Marathi entertainment industry like Amruta Khanvilkar, Sonalee Kulkarni, Siddharth Jadhav and others actively participated.
The OTT launch was complete with logo to the #MadhuriAaliMaheri launch campaign, to the print and other mainline media campaigns, the digital and social campaigns, the press engagement, the audience interaction, the influencer and content strategy.
“Ideate has been a great partner from the early stages, and we are glad to have them on board to take our brand to Marathi audiences worldwide. Well-thought-out and carefully actioned, the attention to detail and nuances brought forth emotions from Madhuri as well as all the celebrities attending the launch. We believe the wide variety of content on the platform will be appealing to the Marathi as well as the non-Marathi audiences across India and the globe,” said Akshay Bardapurkar, head and founder at Planet Marathi OTT.
Planet Marathi OTT has a rich blend of Marathi content such as movies, talk shows, concerts, karaoke, and its planned original web series.
Meanwhile, Vrutika Dawda, director at IdeateLabs, commented that the agency had a delightful experience in conceptualizing Planet Marathi OTT, noting that the regional content industry is booming and expanding its foothold in the global markets, to which the Planet Marathi OTT launch is a true testimony.
“Great content is readily consumed and helps make a story universal. The channel will allow India’s diverse culture to be enjoyed globally. We are looking forward to introducing extensive content offerings from the Planet Marathi stables and building conversations for the channel,” Dawda stated.
