To salute the indomitable spirit of India, PhonePe has now announced the launch of its new brand campaign. PhonePe’s new brand campaign to celebrate the relentless spirit of the Indian people and their incredible push in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. The new film of the new campaign is inspired by the company’s ‘Karte Ja, Badhte Ja’ concept. The actor and ambassador of PhonePe have featured and lent his voice to this film of the new brand campaign.
It shows how PhonePe aims to hit its users and merchants do more and step ahead with the necessary proper hygiene and precautions.

Through allowing secure payments, money transfer, payment of bills, mobile recharge, Tv recharge, and many other services anywhere else except home and digital payments, PhonePe helps everyone adjust to their new situations. As described in one of the lines in the film – ‘Rukna toh humein aata nahin,’ the Indian quest for change has no full stop.” As stated by Sameer Nigam, the founder and CEO, PhonePe.
