Fly higher with the Frappuccino

Long standing queues, security checks, terminal transfers and noisy flight passengers can be way too annoying. The peaceful wee hour of a starry night too can appear like busy afternoon. After an exhaustive business trip, the busy Mumbai Domestic Airport Terminal has hosted few cafes and resto-bars to let you de-stress. One such place to lounge is Starbucks!

This month they had new Frappobrities (Celebrities+Frappuccino)on their block. As a part of their Summer campaign, they launched a  new flavor who was worth its salt because it had sworn to cast a spell of amazement on its fans and flyers with its debut. And this one little being unconventional from its siblings did play its role fantastically.

The scrumptiously creamy flavor of a cheesecake arrives from a premium cream cheese sauce that is flawlessly blended with Starbucks signature traditional whipped cream only to let your taste buds take-off on a mesmerizing flight of ecstasy.

With IFP 2016, segregating varied participation categories, there is a fair chance for people to partake in large numbers. I must emphasize that in the last 3-4 years, the ratio of content consumer to content creator has changed drastically. People now are open to sharing their stories, experiences and are not camera shy anymore. This largely supports our agenda where we encourage people to tell a story through their camera.”


He continues, “Participation by students, housewives and working professionals in IFP has made this art look ‘cool’ and much acceptable by the common masses thus prompting us to shift base to Mumbai. This city has unrestricted opportunities to connect with the maximum targeted audience and create round the year engagement with the thriving filmmakers.”
