"Our marketing strategy aims to bring to the forefront the multi-functionality of the phone."1

- Rahul Saighal, Chief Marketing Officer, Aircel in 2009.

"I've never seen as many innovations on any other brand on such a consistent basis. The circle teams at Aircel have been pushing us to raise the bar on innovations. We are trying to create 'opportunities to chat' and people are actually talking about them, so it's been quite a success."2
