It is a testament of Godrej group’s commitment towards Brighter Living as it reaches out and builds a connect with the young and the young-at-heart. Anjaana Anjaani, the movie, resonates with GoJiyo since it is a platform that encourages people to make friends. The Anjaana Anjaani online media campaign had 35,000 new avatars becoming part of the Gojiyo Tribe.
