ixigo has rolled out its new campaign, #NikalLo, featuring actors Jackie Shroff and Suniel Shetty as the new faces of the brand. Through the campaign, the brand aims to increase brand awareness amidst the festive season. The campaign will leverage both television and digital platforms. 

People have grown up watching these Bollywood actors, and their commitment to work and resilience resonates with the brand’s ethos, Aloke Bajpai, co-founder and group chief executive officer (CEO), and Rajnish Kumar, co-founder and group chief product and technology officer (CPTO), ixigo, said. “Travel is back with a bang this year and our aim with this campaign is to maximise awareness around ixigo ahead of the festive season. ‘ixigo’ is a unique brand name and was actually generated using an algorithm. For years we have seen users trying to pronounce ‘ixigo’ with some interesting variations and that was our inspiration behind the first video,” they added.
