Vim's new tv commercial features world's largest family

Vim, Hindustan Unilever’s leading dishwashing brand, launched a new TV commercial featuring the world’s largest family along with popular TV actress and Vim’s brand ambassador, Sakshi Tanwar.

worlds largest family Vim

Shot in the north-eastern state of Mizoram the commercial captures Sakshi introducing the 160 member family to Vim’s power of 100 lemons which is the fastest in removing the toughest grease from vessels.

Ziona Chana’s family lives together in a four-storey apartment in Baktwang village in Aizawl, Mizoram. Ziona Chana is 69 years old and has 94 children. Sakshi visited their home to meet them and understand the way they live and what it is that binds them together. She met the women of the family to find out more about how they manage the task of cooking three meals in one day for so many members. 

To prepare each meal for the family, the women spend four hours in the kitchen. It is not just the time but the quantity of ingredients that makes the family’s cooking ritual so special. For instance, they need 82 litres of milk, one kg of tea leaves and two kg of sugar for a one time serving of tea. Cooking every meal for all the 160 members also means a large number of big greasy vessels left behind at least three times in a day.

Sakshi met the women and introduced them to Vim which has the power of 100 lemons that makes it ‘sabze tez’. It reduces the amount of time the women spend in getting the tough grease off the vessels, and frees them up to spend some quality time with their family.

Quote from Sakshi Tanwar, Brand Ambassador, Vim:

“It has always been a fun experience shooting television commercials for Vim but this one was particularly special. I couldn’t believe that a family can have 160 members until I met the lovely people from Ziona Chana’s household. I was so surprised to see the quantity of food they need to cook on a daily basis and the sheer number and size of vessels that the women must wash every day.

I am glad I could bring some respite to their daily chores by introducing them to Vim’s power of 100 lemons. The speed with which Vim removes the stubborn grease gives the women some spare time outside of their kitchen in which they can perhaps watch their kids play football.”
