Much-awaited Malayalam movie Kandahar, which features
Mohanlal, Amitabh Bachchan, Ganesh Venkatraman, Sumalatha and
Kaveri Jha in the leads, is all set to hit the screens on December
16. Now, producer Antony Perumbavoor and Mohanlal are finding out
new tricks to promote the film. As a part of publicity, they have
teamed up with Kerala Tourism for its Grand Kerala Shopping
The Kerala Tourism has kick started GKSF on December 1.
Kandahar is one of the brands associated with promoting
Kerala Tourism's GKSF. A scene from the film has been used for the
advertisement, which showcases Mohanlal in military officer's
uniform and Bachchan in civilian clothes. It has a tag line "Hold
on! I'm coming too"
Now, the ad has hit a controversy in the political arena of
Kerala. Earlier, Amitabh Bachchan had agreed to become the brand
ambassador of Kerala Tourism. But the CPI(M) government had to drop
him after knowing that he had signed a similar contract for Gujarat
with the Narendra Modi Government.
However, the GKSF is the biggest shopping festival in Kerala.
The fest showcases variety of things across the state. Over 6000
traders had joined the event, which had a turnover of Rs 4000 crore
last year. This year, it is expected to increase it by Rs 5000
