Thankfully Yash Raj Films has decided to relook at the way they had been promoting (or shall we say under promoting) their films over the last one year. Be it Chak De India, Laaga Chunari Mein Daag, Aaja Nachle, Tashan and most recently Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic the production house never believed in pumping in mega bucks for the promotion of their films. Not that an additional spent of moolah would have got big audience for most of their recent flops but it would have certainly helped these films walk an extra distance.
However, with their much anticipated Tashan failing to deliver, YRF has now all its eyes set on Bachna Ae Haseeno which is carrying superb reports. As a result, the production house is going all out to make sure that the film is on everyone's lips en route to its 15th August release.
Unlike majority of their films which see any kind of promotion beginning only 4-5 weeks in advance, the buzz for Bachna Ae Haseeno started catching up 2 months prior to the release. The songs have been bombarding the music channels all over while the publicity stills have been making the rounds too, hence added on to the hype for the film.
All of this has resulted in an all-around positive word of mouth for this film which could well be the real launch of Ranbir Kapoor in a hero 'avtar' per se. While he didn't quite have a conventional launch with Saawariya, Bachna Ae Haseeno is expected to change the fortunes for Ranbir who gets to romance ladies of different shapes, sizes and age groups in the form of Bipasha Basu, Deepika Padukone and Minissha Lamba.
Meanwhile songs by Vishal-Shekhar have already started creating frenzy with the fusion version of the Kishore Kumar sung title song already making a huge impression. The other track which is currently on air, 'Khuda Jane', has also created positive vibes about this album which has entered the Top-3 of the music charts within a couple of days of its arrival on the stands. No wonder, Siddharth Anand must be smiling seeing an exception being made around the promotion of his film that is already being touted to be the next major success.
