Partners with popular stand-up comedian Danish Sait to add to the celebrations

MTR Foods, a pioneer in packaged foods, today commemorated World Idli Day by partnering with famous comedian and Instagram influencer Danish Sait, along with several digital and on-ground activities.

The digital film has a lively and quirky style of dialogue in which Danish portrays two of his famous fictional characters.

This includes mass sampling of its scrumptious Idli range, multiple digital engagements, newspaper advertisements, among other engaging activities. These initiatives add another definitive layer to MTR Foods’ differential marketing approach to engage with the people and build prominence on the occasion of World Idli Day.
