Virat Khullar, group head marketing, Hyundai India, “After consulting our multiple stakeholders and looking through all the relevant data, we landed upon the idea that creating inclusivity for disabled people in India can be one of the initiatives Hyundai can lead in India. This is also because in this endeavour to provide inclusivity to disabled people, the basic premise is to provide them accessibility for movement, which aligns with our vision for progress for humanity.”

Speaking on bringing actor Shah Rukh Khan on board for the initiative, Khullar opined, “Shah Rukh has been our corporate brand ambassador for more than 25 years. A lot of our corporate initiatives and key events see his presence. He is part of the creatives, films and was also the part of the launch event.”

The brand is also partnering with NDTV to bring in union and state ministers across the country, with the aim of launching a survey that covers more than 20 cities. “This is just a start. We have figured out what we want to do till September 2024, but this is still just year one,” Khullar added.
