“Aynabaji Original Series,” a seven-part drama series, was brilliantly conceptualized based on the core message of the original film – duality of human lives/characters.

The objective was to recreate an integrated campaign over online and offline channels to generate similar engagement results and hype-building prowess of Aynabaji for the drama series to attract the viewers.
The idea was to rekindle the hype for Aynabaji and bring it to the Original Series. Audience engagement with interactive contests and featured activities by several prominent celebrities and social media influencers. was the priority. Using both digital and television platform the range of the target audience range was maximized and consumer interest was increased thoroughly. Print, digital and TV media was simultaneously used for maximum efficacy and bringing the Aynabaji fever back nationwide.
For the first time ever in Bangladesh TV history, “Aynabaji Original Series” telecast simultaneously over three different channels. It was the first time a movie was adapted into a drama series in the country.

Melonades served unique punch lines and still images of characters taken from the drama which was unlike anything the audience was used to. Promo content featuring Behind-the-scenes footage, Director and Actor interviews were highly boosted for maximum reach. Soundtrack from the dramas were released before the drama by digital media partner E-Tunes Entertainment to leave the audience clamoring for more.
“Guess Koro, Bhelki Lagao” disguise challenge was launched to maximize the potential of the series. Photos of different celebrities and social media influencers posing with Aynabaji Bhelki Box in disguise was posted online for the audience to guess their identities for lucrative rewards.
