NEW DELHI: CRED, a high-trust community of creditworthy individuals, merchants and institutions, has come on board as the official partner of the most awaited event of the year, the Indian Premier League 2020. CRED has kickstarted the journey of making this year’s IPL more rewarding for all players and viewers with a host of activities that would upgrade the experience for CRED Members. In line with the same, the brand also launched their latest campaign - ‘CRED: Not Everyone Gets It’ - featuring three ad films slated to launch over the course of the tournament, and starring leading Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor along with other iconic celebrities from the 90s, that promises to entertain and spread CRED’s message.
Through these creative and fun ad films, CRED aims to amplify its messaging of how easy it is to manage timely credit card payments through the app and also getting regularly rewarded for good financial behaviour. The campaign started from 19 September with the launch of the first film starring Anil Kapoor. The veteran actor talks about the message of paying credit card bills on time in his unique, inimitable style which has made him a favorite since the 90s, across generations of audiences from millennials to their parents. To keep up the momentum, two more films featuring other much loved Bollywood celebrities will be released over the next month to join in the celebration. The campaign is truly a memorable and comedic take on CRED’s messaging that has been conceptualized entirely by the in-house team and brought to life by Ayappa KM, co-founder, Early Man Films, the production agency.

At CRED, we believe in rewarding good financial behaviour and with this campaign, we are positive that our message of encouraging financial literacy and educating viewers on the rewarding benefits of responsible financial behaviour would come through in an entertaining manner. With Anil Kapoor and others lending their inimitable styles and unique personalities to each video, we are sure audiences would definitely relate to this campaign and our association would be off to a rewarding start.”

Early Man Film executive producer & co-founder Anand Menon said, “It was a massive challenge for us to turn around this production keeping in mind the current scenario. But the fact that we had an opportunity to use these celebrities in a unique and entertaining way to tell the CRED story, made the effort worthwhile. We hope everyone enjoys these films and they bring a much-needed smile to people’s lives.“
