Celebrity endorsements from Bollywood and cricket stars are highly coveted by brands in India. Bigbasket teamed up with Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan to create the brand's first TVC.

4. Decathlon India
Engagement Score – 1,000

As part of its #RunWIthKalenji campaign, Decathlon ran a Twitter quiz for followers. The brand used the hashtag a little over a100 times while the followers participated and used it over 1,200 times.

5. OLX India
Engagement Score – 914

This video almost brought tears to my eyes. Rolling up emotions such as nostalgia, longing and fulfillment, the video tells the story of how an octogenarian woman was able to reunite with her childhood. The lovely concept and subtle brand plug-in is a marketing win, according to me. Even the engagement numbers are in agreement given the brand received over 29,000 Likes and 2,800 Shares on this post.
