It’s the time of instant gratification. From filmmakers to actors and producers now follow the concept of hit and run, where the fate of a film is decided in the opening weekend and the verdict is sealed

While the clichéd tactics still work, doing something different adds the extra oomph to the publicity game. Only a few actors like Aamir Khan make sure that the product is as good as its product line claims to be. Thinking out of the box has been his forte and his marketing intellect is unassailable. Shahrukh Khan and Vidya Balan have just joined the bandwagon. Among all the film stars, Rajinikanth is probably the only actor whose films require no promotions or publicity.

    Aamir Khan is the best! He redefined marketing from QSQT itself with its innovative posters. And marketing of Lagaan was so phenomenal that it became first film to be included as case study in IIM. The only actor who has innovative marketing strategies every time. The only actor whose strategies are also copied by others. The only actor to be visiting faculty at IIM-A – it’s Aamir Khan who’s grand daddy of marketing!
