Mumbai: As we inch closer to the beginning of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023, the excitement is at an all-time high. Disney+ Hotstar, the official streaming partner for the tournament, released a new ad film as a part of their #FreeLoThodaJeeLo campaign. Starring Abhishek Banerjee and Jameel Khan, the film captures the anticipation for the upcoming tournament and highlights its ‘free on mobile’ offering this year along with free first-class entertainment such as Freddy, Brahmastra Part One: Shiva and many others.
Conceptualized by the internal Disney+ Hotstar team and directed by Nikhil Rao, the latest ad film is an unusual and striking play on the importance of prioritizing one’s own needs alongside those of one’s family. In the video, a man is denied entry into heaven because, in an effort to ensure the comfort of his wife, son, and mother, he forgets to enjoy the pleasures of life like cricket and entertainment, made even easier through Disney+ Hotstar’s free offerings.
Team India begins their Men’s Cricket World Cup campaign on 8 October 2023, with an epic showdown against Australia at the iconic MA Chidambaram Stadium. The hosts will then lock horns with Afghanistan at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi. The anticipation builds as India’s path leads them to a highly anticipated clash with arch-rivals Pakistan at the Narendra Modi Stadium on 14 October, adding another thrilling chapter to the ‘Greatest Rivalry’."
Catch every exhilarating moment of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 live and free on mobile on Disney+ Hotstar. The tournament will also broadcast LIVE on the Star Sports Network.
