Mumbai, September 2nd 2020: Kansai Nerolac Paints Ltd., in its centenary year, has decided to commemorate the occasion by unveiling a new positioning and a refreshed brand outlook.

This is even more relevant in today’s unprecedented times when we are faced with challenges of a scale previously unknown to humanity.
“Colours that Care” is the brand’s new positioning statement and a new campaign has been launched titled Aaj Careful toh Kal Colourful promoting the hashtag #ACKC that puts the new positioning in the context of today’s times. A series of digital films have been released by the brand encouraging people to act responsibly today as the world seeks to rebuild towards a sustainable and bright future.
