He has spearheaded iconic campaigns like ‘Netflix for All,’ Bhuvan Bam’s Pizza Hut campaign, and the groundbreaking ‘Yeh Diwali Football Wali’ campaign for the Indian Super League.


He was also the creative force behind the celebrated ‘Teen Ka Dream’ Adidas World Cup campaign. Abhijat’s career includes key roles at top agencies like Leo Burnett, McCann, and Creativeland Asia. He has also headed the premium sports vertical at Star Sports, where he played a pivotal role in promoting the culture of football, tennis, and F1 in India. Known for his relentless pursuit of creative excellence, Abhijat combines strategic thinking with unbridled enthusiasm in his new role.

Bharadwaj said, “Joining an iconic global brand like dentsu is truly exciting. My goal is to unlock new opportunities for Dentsu Creative Isobar in India and build a best-in-class team that delivers creative solutions and exceptional value for our clients.”
