Kurkure unveils mascot, named Ms. Kurkure
She is here to represent the largest workforce in the world, the homemakers. She stands synonymous to every Chief Operating Officer of the house, whom we admire for her ideologies, never-ending zeal and dedication, hidden powers that keep the house running in order and more.
Kurkure, India’s loved snack brand, today unveiled its mascot, named Ms. Kurkure. Launched by Bollywood actress, Taapsee Pannu, Kurkure’s brand ambassador, the mascot will bring alive the brand’s positioning, Khayaal Toh Chatpata Hai, that celebrates progressive thinking that homemakers bring into their household. The chatpata avatar of Ms. Kurkure has been conceptualized to foster conversations on colloquial topics; encouraging families to embrace modernity while being anchored in tradition, with humor, fun, spontaneity and perfect timing.
Expressing her excitement on the launch of Ms. Kurkure, Taapsee Pannu, shared that “Ms. Kurkure is an ally to homemakers of India, who is the center force behind every positive transformation in their household.
