BollywoodLife got some reactions from various sections of social media with common folk and celebrities outraging on a cheap PR tactic used to promote a film
Film publicity fell to an all time low when we received a rather disgusting email recently. The mail was sent to us by a PR firm (Cosmic Spider) who is handling a film called Pocket Gangsters was just downright shameful.
The subject of the mail read as: Hot Rape Scene from the film Pocket Gangsters featuring actors Shivangi Mehra, Madhur Mittal, Vijay Raaz and others. Yes, you read that right. And we decided to teach them a lesson by publishing a hard-hitting news piece about this degrading email. We received positive response from our readers on Twitter, who like us thought that such tacky PRs shouldn’t go this cheap ever again. Here’s what they had to say…
Asawari Salwan: Mankind all time new low. The movie should be scraped. If a rape scene is “hot” then our society is doomed.
Tina Sharma Tiwari: Disgusting. One Tight Slap 2 PR firm.
Amit Garg: This is Sick, need to break this mentality
Surya: Definitely tacky.
Dhawal Kulkarni: Shows how people are willing to discard all inhibitions for publicity
