A TVC featuring NTR Jr. and his friends at home has also been released to establish Star MAA Movies as the go-to destination for all the fans who wish to watch VIVO IPL 2018 in Telugu.
The TVC captures a scene in NTR Jr.’s home where his friends are debating why the need for VIVO IPL in Telugu commentary. NTR Jr, surprised asks "Telugu aite yenta?" (What's so special about Telugu?), and goes on to say how you always need a special something – Imagine Chicken without mirchi; Pakoda without onion; A car without petrol and sleeping on a mother’s lap. As his friends agree to his reasoning, NTR Jr. wraps up with “Asalu maza, Telugu ra!”
