The ‘In-Laws’ TVC is a film which shows how women bring good luck to every household and also breaks the stereotype that mother-in-laws are not always evil. This TVC targets women IPL viewers who form a large pie in the viewership chart. The final TVC takes place at a college and shows two rival college groups who set aside their differences when it comes to supporting their ‘apni’ or own team at the IPL.
