Tea brand Brooke Bond 3 Roses, from Hindustan Unilever, has just launched a music video as an ode to legendary playback singer SP Balasubrahmanyam (a.k.a. SPB), who passed away recently. Four remarkable artistes across generations - Haricharan Seshadri, Utthara Unnikrishnan, Srinivas and Anirudh Ravichander - came together through a music video to celebrate SPB’s music that transcends a lineage of music lovers. Brooke Bond 3 Roses conceptualized and created the music video in collaboration with Sony Music and Mindshare.
