‘Bombay Velvet’ exclusive preview unveiled on Hotstar


MUMBAI: Stepping up on its film marketing initiatives by setting new precedents, Fox Star India has rolled out its third digital-first initiative on Hotstar in less than a month for its upcoming movie Bombay Velvet.

The studio unveiled an exclusive preview of the film to Hotstar’s 15-million-strong audience base on 10 May.

The Hotstar movie preview of Bombay Velvet comprises four minutes of handpicked scenes from the soon-to-be-released film. The preview was packaged with a specially shot sequence, which had Karan Johar introducing the movie's stars Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma with their on-screen names of Johnny Balraj and Rosie Noronha, and inviting the audience to watch the exclusive footage that followed. It ended with the trio reminding the audience of the film’s release date, and inviting them to watch it in theatres on 15 May.

Fox Star Studios India CMO Shikha Kapur said, “We are delighted to be the first studio in India to introduce a series of Digital-first initiatives for film marketing on mobile, and that too with a huge multi-starrer like Bombay Velvet. While initially it was all about creating buzz, with the film now getting closer to its release date, we thought the audience would be excited to preview some of Bombay Velvet’s high-quality content, and hence the Movie Preview. This is a part of the build-up strategy which has worked very well so far.  Hotstar is poised as the go to destination for digital content platform on mobile today, and we believe it will help us effectively fill the market gaps for movie promotions on digital, and through the innovations, set a precedent for film marketing not only in our country, but also in other world markets.”

This promotional activity came on the heels of a one-hour talk show featuring Ranbir Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Karan Johar and Anurag Kashyap, which was shot for and premiered exclusively on Hotstar. This was preceded by yet another world-first initiative, the video premiere on Hotstar of the popular song, Mohabbat Buri Bimari, from Bombay Velvet.
