Speaking at the launch, Debabrata Mukherjee, VP-Marketing& Commercial, Coca-Cola India and South West Asia, said “Coke Studio is a platform, owned by a community of millions of music lovers. That makes it easy for us, because this community tells us what to do. But that also puts a huge responsibility on us because we have to ensure that we meet their expectations. We make ourselves believe that so far we haven’t let them down or else the 2.9 Million Facebook fans would have made themselves heard. However, what they have asked of us, is to change the format and make it ‘always on’, ‘yearlong’ and as ‘singles’ rather than an album. We have made an honest attempt to deliver on these. Coke Studio lovers will let us know, if we put in our best efforts. I can only thank this ever growing community of Coke Studio lovers for continuing to challenge us on our efforts and creativity.”
