Commenting on the association, Arjun Rampal, actor and Galaxy brand ambassador, said, "I believe in partnering with brands that I use and appreciate. Galaxy is a very popular, reputed international brand and definitely one of my favourites. I admire the timeless appeal, global legacy and the effortless elegance that the brand exudes. Its enriching taste and rich creamy texture, can make anyone fall in love with the chocolate. The film exquisitely describes the perfect chocolate experience that Galaxy provides. I am thrilled to be a part of one of the biggest Galaxy launch campaigns and am looking forward to a great journey ahead."
Speaking on the association, Raghav Rekhi, Marketing Director, Mars International India Pvt. Ltd, said, "At Mars, it is our endeavour to bring the best tasting high quality chocolates to our consumers.

We are confident that the integrated campaign will drive more visibility for the brand."
The brand is being launched in India with a 360 degree integrated communications campaign that involves in-store branding across trade channels, experiential sampling and other marketing initiatives. With this launch, the chocolate brand has also introduced its new packaging with a pack that can be opened sideways rather than from the top and can be resealed and reused.
