We will be giving 250 creators the best of moments from our films on Instagram Reels and watch their creativity flow," Anand Gurnani, vice-president, digital and new media, Yash Raj Films, said in a statement.
The campaign will feature multiple challenges hosted by YRF on its Instagram handle under categories like dance, acting, singing, fitness, fashion and beauty - inviting creators to create their own Reels on these diverse themes. The Dance category will have challenges titled ‘Match The Steps’ and ‘Dance Mix’, while Enact will have creators showcasing their acting skills with ‘Lip Sync Star’, ‘Dialoguebaazi’, ‘Get In The Character’ and ‘Walk With Swag’. Singers will get an opportunity with challenges like ‘Sing Along’ while the ‘Recreate The Look’ challenge under the fashion and beauty category, will inspire creators to recreate the look from a particular scene.

“With over a billion people on Instagram expressing themselves across varied interests and surfaces, it has truly become a platform where culture unfolds. Creators epitomise Instagram for their creativity in content and amazing social video moments. This is true for Reels as well, where we are seeing newer creators being discovered everyday, and trends breakout regularly," Manish Chopra, head of partnerships, Facebook India, said in a statement.
