Axeno’s breakout session was a treasure trove of insights on personalization. The fireside chat format offered a candid exchange between Adobe’s BFSI leader, myself (Ankur Mittal), and Deepak Oram (SVP and Martech Leader at HDFC Bank). It was enlightening to delve into the intricacies of CDP implementation, scaling personalization, and the evolution and future of the martech space.
A Tapestry of Art, Honesty, and Technology with Zoya Akhtar
One of the Summit’s most riveting sessions was the tête-à-tête between the distinguished Director and Screenwriter, Zoya Akhtar, and Anindita Velluri, CMO India, Adobe. Zoya delved into the intricate art of storytelling, emphasizing the indispensability of honesty in weaving narratives that resonate. She elucidated on the magic that unfolds when filmmakers remain truthful to their craft, casting aside pretense and putting their raw, genuine emotions onto the silver screen. This honesty, she believes, is the bridge connecting a story to its audience, fostering a relationship that transcends the boundaries of cinema.
Her candid revelation about the importance of therapy illuminated the challenges faced by creatives. Zoya voiced how therapy has been instrumental in maintaining her sanity in the high-pressure world of filmmaking, reminding us of the often overlooked mental tolls and the significance of mental health awareness.
As the discourse veered towards the technological realm, Zoya highlighted how advancements have revolutionized storytelling. While the core essence of a narrative remains unchanged, its mediums have undergone a metamorphosis. From cinematic epics to bite-sized Insta reels and YouTube shorts, stories now have multifaceted avatars, each with its unique charm and reach.
Zoya’s perspectives served as a testament to the harmony between traditional storytelling ethos and the dynamism introduced by technology, emphasizing that at their core, all stories aim to touch the human heart, irrespective of their format or length.
