Brand's 360 degree campaign's success makes it the no.1 app in the Music category.

Hungama.com, India's first on-demand digital entertainment storefront, recently came out with a brand campaign featuring a voiceover by Bollywood actor, Hrithik Roshan. The campaign showed the significance of music in the day-to-day life of every individual. From a regular day to one which is proving to be difficult, music always cheers one up - is what the campaign attempted to show.

The 'Zindagi ka sound track' campaign was designed by Scarecrow Communications. It included TV, digital, OOH, radio and in-cinema advertising. Along with this, Scarecrow carried out a social media contest with the hashtag #HungamaMusic and a separate Twitter contest.

This Twitter contest, where Twitteratis had to complete the sentence "Music #Zindagika..., saw over 30,000 tweets.
