On announcing the new brand ambassador for Skybags, Sudip Ghose, Vice President – Marketing said, “With more young customers travelling at an early age, styling in the bags has become a necessity.

Varun Dhawan, with his ‘real’ and ‘reel’ life image perfectly fits the brand. The idea is to make it brand appeal right from a 15 year old student for backpack to a 25 year old first time luggage buyer”
