Swiggy tells the story of a meet-cute among neighbors in ‘Wrong Address’ by Talented

MUMBAI, INDIA – Serendipity, destiny, luck, fate. Love heavily banks and blossoms on these pillars, which is why they say, “it hits you when you least expect it to.”

Online food delivery service Swiggy‘s latest film, Wrong Address, exemplified just that: the all-too-sudden flutter that strikes without warning. The film reveled in the sweet possibility of a wrong address delivery which becomes a meet-cute for two neighbors, Aashna and Raghav. In the film, the audience saw how they gradually go from strangers to lovers, without ever seeing their faces. Because here’s the best part: the story unfolds only through Swiggy UI, drawing inspiration from Google’s much-loved, Parisian Love.


The brief, from the very first day, was met with a lot of love and excitement. “Over the past eight years, Swiggy has become a large enabler in consumer lives and elevating moments – whether small or big. With this brief, we wanted to try and trace the journey of a relationship and the role the brand had to play in a manner that was creatively disruptive. We were really excited to see the love and care with which our creative partners – Talented and Chocolate Films – treated the brief and the film,” said Swiggy Director for Brand Marketing and Social Sneha John.

“One of the biggest reasons it turned out so well is because we treated it like a short film and not an ad,” commented Talented Founding Member and Creative Pooja Manek.

“Despite showing only Swiggy UI, what still stands out and lingers is the story of Aashna and Raghav, who found love at the most unexpected place,” added Talented Head of Production Nabil Kureshi and Account Manager Balaji Padmanabhan.

The nuances – Aashna being a North Indian and Raghav hailing from Kerala – form a fertile field for creating many aww-inducing moments, like spelling Pazham Pori the right way. “Most of these instances sprouted from my own experience of moving to Bangalore. I’ve been corrected for my pronunciation of Kozhikode to know better,” commented Malvika Thirani, the writer of Wrong Address and the voice of Aashna.

“But it was only after the film went live that the most endearing thing happened. Sort of like a post-credit scene that’s worth the wait. My friend placed a Swiggy order for me with a note that read: ‘Proud of you.’ I guess that was my script coming full circle.”

“It makes you realise that Swiggying is not just a ritual or a mere act of service. It’s how some people articulate their feelings today. It is perhaps the 6th love language, and rightfully so,” Malvika concluded.
