The campaign, created by Beattie McGuinness Bungay, showcases Cobra as the choice beer to accompany Indian food, while focusing on its heritage and its taste.
Supported by cinema and digital activity, the campaign uses the strapline, "Cobra, splendidly Indian, superbly smooth".
The TV ad features a train travelling through India, showcasing the vibrant Indian culture and country, through the people travelling on the train, and the landscape the train passes through.
It uses three new Indian talents touted for success: B.L.O.T., a pair of filmmakers, producers and DJs; Manou, a street fashion blogger; and Vandana Verma, a food and lifestyle writer.
Previous work for the brand used the messaging, "Less fizz to go perfectly with curry".
Lord Karan Bilimoria, founder and chairman of Cobra Beer, said: "The new advert tells our story very well, presenting a journey that continues to this day.
"We have a beer that has won multiple awards through the years, and in 2012, we will make great strides for Cobra to become a top 10 beer brand in the UK.
The ninth and 10th biggest selling beers in the off-trade, according to Nielsen, are Peroni Nastro Azzurro and San Miguel, both with sales of £70.2m, while the top seller was Stella Artois with £500.3m.
