MUMBAI: Standing by the positioning that Star Gold is about more than just airing movies, Star's movie channel in an endeavour to offer a complete Bollywood experience has conceptualised a show that gives the viewers an oppurtunity to get up close and personal with four attractive women in Bollywood and discover their personnae.

The four actors who will be featured on this show are Ishaa Koppikar, Celina Jaitley, Kim Sharma and Amrita Arora. The idea being Humse Dosti Karoge will create added salience for the brand and will offer viewers greater scope to interact and build a lasting relationship with the brand.

He also stated that a similar exercise done last year with Sabsey favourite Kaun upped the channel share significantly to channel share significantly at 5.4 in July , which even beat Sony during the month.

The first episode will be all about Ishaa; followed by Ishaa's favourite movie introduced by her.

One big winner will win the 'dream date' with the girls, and a 100 winners will get to attend the televised gala event. Other winners will recieve autographed posters of the actors. The telecast of winner's date with the 4 women will take place on 8 April.

The channel has chalked out a comprehensive mileage on-air, on-ground and on mass media which will enable their brand to connect with audiences across the spectrum. Advertisers will be ensured sustained presence on Star Gold for almost two months as well as sustained presence on the Star Network through cross channel promos. Also, there will be a brand association with the four upcoming actors.

Promotional activities will also take place in association with other media partners apart from sustained Internet and a direct marketing efforts.

Star Gold has repeatedly come up with shows and events and special programming properties. Last year Gold unveiled Sabse Favourite Kaun which was positioned as India's biggest opinion poll which would determine the nation's favourite stars.
