LG Electronics is all set to launch 14 new models and reposition the brand as a fun-loving, free-spirited brand, which promises quality, innovation, style and excellence in performance. LG has therefore signed Bollywood hotties John Abraham, Genelia D’souza and Abhay Deol to endorse its latest range of mobile phones.
LG officials added that John, Abhay and Genelia are youth icons and fit the role well. Sudhin Mathur, business group marketing head, Mobile Communications, LG Electronics India Limited, further added, “They are youth icons. Having established ourselves in the field of innovation and design, LG Mobiles is now poised to scale new heights. As part of our overall strategy to reposition LG Mobiles as a youthful brand, the brand ambassadors will help us in relating with our consumers.”

Abhay Deol confirmed the news and spoke about his association, “I always stand for what I believe, be it professional or personal life.

These phones come with the perfect bundle of offerings that any youngster would want and is a perfect fit with me.”
