This time, the toofanis even more electrifying! I completely identify with Thums Up’s new campaign thought – asking people to unleash the potential within them – bas dhakkan hi tohhatanahai. Thums Up stands for this inherent potential which is within each of us. It’s about self-transformation, finding your true calling and unleashing ones Inner Potential!”

Speaking about the campaign, Debabrata Mukherjee, VP – Marketing, Coca-Cola India said,"EkToofanKhatam to DoosraShuru". In continuation of our Toofani philosophy, Thums Up is back with its thunderous campaign: ‘Toofan to sab keanderhai, bas dhakkan hi to hatanahai’. The campaign builds the Thums Up philosophy of inspiring today’s youth to recognize their inner potential and unlock the Thunder within. We are constantly trying to push boundaries to bring this message to our consumers and this year, we are setting the bar higher. The compelling visual narration portrays Salman unleashing the Thunder within, for his bottle ofThums Up”.

Commenting on the film, KV Sridhar, Chief Creative Officer India Sub-continent, Leo Burnett said, “The new campaign embodies the values of being adventurous and the ability to go beyond one’s limit. The idea behind this whole approach was to convey that a true Thums Up drinker will go to all possible heights to experience the energetic and energizing taste of Thums Up. In the TVC Salman Khan shows the extent to which he can go for his Thums Up by achieving the impossible.

In line with the theme of the 2014 campaign, Thums Up has rolled out its extremely popular ruralmarketing initiative, ThumsUpToofaniJalsa in Rajhmundhary.
