Dulux unveils next generation Weathershield Powerflexx with a new TV campaign featuring Boman Irani

AkzoNobel, a global Paints and Coatings company and maker of Dulux Paints in India, released a new TVC campaign titled “Double Protection” to mark the launch of next generation Dulux Weathershield Powerflexx, an innovative and category leading premium exterior paint. The new TVC featuring acclaimed Bollywood actor - Boman Irani, aims to establish the superior product credentials of the next generation offering of Dulux Weathershield Powerflexx that provides protection against constant corrosive and damaging impact of the weather on the back of breakthrough technologies.

After the immensely successful launch of Dulux Weathershield Powerflexx using the Nature Challenge campaign, Dulux is raising the bar by offering consumers a revolutionary product which offers 2X protection to the exteriors of their home.

Rajiv Rajgopal, managing director, AkzoNobel India said, “We’re experts in the proud craft of making paints and coatings, setting the standard in colour and protection. That means innovation really is at the heart of everything that we do. We have introduced the next-generation Dulux Weathershield Powerflexx that offers 2X better protection – a superior product performance for home exteriors. The new TVC highlights the functional benefits of this technologically advanced exterior wall paints that has been especially designed to protect India’s homes from its unique and extreme climatic conditions.”

Titus Upputuru, national creative director, Dentsu One said, “Weathershield Powerflexx exterior paint of Dulux is doubly qualified to protect the exterior walls against fungus and cracks. We just wanted to juxtapose these credentials against those of an owner of the house. People usually pride themselves on the number of degrees and diplomas that they hold. The TVC punctures the pride by pointing to the condition of the walls. A house should match up to its owner’s credentials – that’s the message we wanted to bring through this quirky execution starring Boman Irani.”

Abhinav Kaushik, executive vice president, account management, Dentsu One said “In a market saturated with similar product offerings, Dulux Weathershield range of exterior paints has differentiated itself with its advanced technology credentials. Carrying forward that legacy, it is now raising the benchmark with the next generation Weathershield Powerflexx which offers 2x better protection – a superior product performance unmatched by any other paint in the category. The current campaign conveys this message of superior performance to today’s tech-savvy, smart consumers through a humorous narrative.”

Boman Irani, actor, said “I had great fun being part of the Dulux campaign. Commercials with interesting characters are always a joy to play. The brand has an interesting product that attacks the age-old problem of fungus and cracks on a house and offers double protection. I hope people enjoy the commercial and find a solution in the product.”
