And it's been a rare example of professionals striking a good understanding on the overall brand objectives - Cinevistaas Ltd. for its more practical approach and being a solutions oriented co. In fact the credit goes to the overall teamwork between the Director Rohan Sippy and his associate Aniket, Anurag at Cinevistaas and the Agency team - where the inputs were symbiotic in its end purpose.
