Shankar Prasad, CEO & founder of the company, said, “We’re elated to be associated with one of the most promising actresses and youth icons in India today. Her cheerful persona and dynamism blend perfectly with the brand, and this alliance is a step forward towards becoming the preferred choice for India when it comes to delightful & premium fragrances. We are thrilled to have her on board & can’t wait for everyone to see the collaboration come to life, soon!”
Actor Ananya Panday said, “As someone who has always loved good fragrances & all things fun, this association with them was one I didn’t have to think twice about. Given my love for animals, I also loved that the brand is 100% vegan & cruelty-free,” she said.
In March this year, the online beauty brand had raised $35 million in funding led by A91 Partners. Till date, Plureplay Skin Sciences has raised about $50 million in institutional funding.
