Do you remember that beautiful ad by British Airways where an air hostess meets an old Indian granny on a flight? The advert went viral in February and has now won an award in US.

The ad was made by Masaan director Neeraj Ghaywan who shared the news on Twitter.

Ghawan had said in February that the reaction to the ad was ‘simply baffling’. “We were not expecting this at all. The agency, SapientNitro, came up with this idea and we developed it. But the response has simply been amazing,” he had said, adding, “The CEOs and VPs of many agencies have been congratulating me. I don’t think many people from the industry have seen in as yet, however I did get a call from Anurag Kashyap.”
