Chinese handset maker Oppo has roped in Bollywood actors Hrithik Roshan and Sonam Kapoor as its South Asia Region brand ambassadors.
“Both Hrithik and Sonam are youth icons and are looked up to for their style and attitude, which is completely in tune with our brand philosophy, which is about young at heart and pursuing for perfection, and always be a trendsetter,” Sky Li, Vice President Oppo and Managing Director of International Mobile Business, said in a statement.
The move coincides with the company’s second year anniversary in India.
“I am proud of the brand’s growth in India and am very excited to be a part of yet another successful innings of the brand in India in 2016,” Hrithik Roshan said.
Oppo sells its phones offline in over 20 markets around the world, and offers online sales to other fifty-plus countries.
Oppo is the official global partner worldwide for the mobile phone category with International Cricket Council (ICC) for four years, from the start of 2016 to the end of 2019.
In May 2015, Oppo also announced a 3-year partnership with FC Barcelona as global partner.
