Hilton has announced a global ambassador partnership with Indian actress, producer, philanthropist and entrepreneur, Deepika Padukone. 

"Recognised for her journey in the entertainment industry and her philanthropic work, Padukone embodies the spirit of modern India and resonates with the aspirations and ethos of the Indian traveller," said a Hilton spokesperson.

Padukone will continue the ‘Hilton. For The Stay’ campaign, which was launched in July 2022, illustrating the realities of travelling and highlighting the importance of ‘The Stay’ as a crucial element that can make or break any trip.
