Chinese smartphone maker Gionee had roped in Telugu actor, Prabhas as its brand ambassador.
Gionee India CEO shared the news saying, “We are extremely proud to announce our association with the mighty Prabhas. He is one the most loved and respected personalities in the country today and has earned this recognition based on his flawless and strong performance. At Gionee, we believe in providing our customers with the similar values embedded in our devices. We are positive that our association with Prabhas will further our proposition of stronger batteries and better selfies.”
Gionee had captured 1.25 crore customer base in India in just five years of launching their smartphones. The company is now working overtime to penetrate into untouched areas in India with their affordable and budget phones. Prabhas, who had turned into famous celebrity across India with the Rajamouli’s magnum opus ‘Baahubali’, has become a hot property for brand endorsements in India.
This news comes as a big advantage to Prabhas, who is now eagerly looking to release his blockbuster hit ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’ in china. Analysts say that this is a strategic move by Prabhas and the Baahubali makers to get close with Chinese people at the right time. It is heard that Gionee will be extending their support to the actor while he is in china for ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’ promotions. Well, this is what we call killing two birds with one stone.
