Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi bring back the Munna Bhai chemistry for Danube Properties

Danube Properties has rolled out a campaign featuring actors Arshad Warsi and Sanjay Dutt.

The Dubai-based real estate developer showcases the property and its features with the duo who starred in the Munnabhai series together. In the film, the duo recreate some of those scenes before it ends with a ‘to be continued’ message. Three more films will be releasing part of the campaign.

The films have been conceptualised by the brand’s in-house creative team.

Rizwan Sajan, founder and chairperson, Danube Group, said, “After a successful run of ads with Sanjay Dutt as our ambassador, we were looking to take the story-telling a notch higher. Roping in Arshad Warsi along with Sanjay Dutt felt like an instinctive choice. The effortless chemistry that Sanjay Dutt and Arshad Warsi share, on and off the camera, made for the perfect canvas to convey the sentiment of ‘feeling at home’ when you live at Danube Properties. The core idea was to show the actors playing themselves as ‘Sanju’ and ‘Arshad’ and create a sequel of episodes that showcase what life at Danube Properties is truly all about.”

He added, “Ditching the traditional sales pitch format usually adopted by real estate companies, we wanted to pepper the scripts with an underlying sense of humour and bring in a strong sense of relatability for anyone who’s watching the ads as we see Arshad (who plays the unexpected guest) move around exploring Sanju’s home and eventually falling in love not only with the Danube Properties home but also with Dubai along the way. The four films were crafted to highlight all that we as a developer currently offer against the backdrop of Dubai and to create a compelling recall factor amongst the audiences – but with an extremely light hearted route.”

The film was rolled out across social media on 15 July.


Dubai: Danube Properties’ Oceanz project’s first tower sold out at launch

Danube Properties’ latest Dh2.5 billion project Oceanz has sold out one of the two towers at launch as demand for Dubai property continues to remain strong from residents and foreign investors.

The tower houses more than 500 units.

“Real estate business is based on trust that is linked to the credibility of property developers. The sell-out of the Oceanz units at the launch event demonstrates growing public trust and investor confidence in Danube Properties, backed with our strong project implementation and delivery credentials that help buyers and investors to generate extra savings from our homes,” said Rizwan Sajan, founder and chairman of Danube Group.

“This is due to our customer-focused development and delivery policy. We launch, sell out, develop, and hand over projects on time and quality. Half of all the projects undertaken so far have been handed over, while customers are still paying their monthly instalments while saving on the rent,” he added.

“Property buyers and investors could count on higher rental returns and benefit from price appreciation due to the ideal location of Oceanz – DMC,” said Danube chairman.

When completed in the first quarter of 2027, Oceanz will rise 51 floors above the ground including a six-level podium filled with car parking and community facilities with 44 floors of residential properties, and deliver 1,250 residential units including studio apartments, 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom and 3-bedroom apartments and a few retail stores.

Danube Properties said it would deliver three projects this year including Wavez (delivered), Jewelz, and Olivz. Most of the projects launched in 2022 and 2023 are ahead of the construction and delivery schedule. The company has recently sold out the Elitz 3 project launched in August 2023, it said.

With prices starting from AED1.1 million for a studio apartment and a trend-setting 1 percent monthly payment plan, Oceanz provides an attractive proposition for both home buyers and investors.

Danube Properties follows a careful approach of launching, selling, and then constructing one project at a time. The company is on track to deliver three projects this year, including Wavez, Jewelz, and Olivz.
