For Shah Rukh Khan and his HNY team the diwali dhamaka has started with the biggest bang. The trailer of the most awaited b-town bonanza ‘Happy New Year’ has created history.
When it comes to digital and marketing innovations for films, SRK’s Red Chillies Entertainments Pvt Ltd has always been at the top of the game. Farah Khan’s ‘Happy New Year’ trailer launch substantiates the point.
Red Chillies used all possible Digital Platforms – Social Media, Mobile (VAS), DTH & Application Economy to ensure a large user preferred reach for the trailer.
While most of the films opt for the conventional Youtube platform, HNY trailer was first launched on Facebook’s native video player using an application wherein the trailer was not only launched on the Facebook page of HNY but also the timelines of all the users who subscribed to the app. “In keeping with the tradition of innovation established by Red Chillies, we were delighted to launch the trailer of HNY for the first time across multiple platforms. This was also done to meet the demands of fans who are consuming talent in ways that suit them. This has given the trailer an unprecedented footprint and delighted the fans,” said Venky Mysore, CEO RCE.
If this isn’t enough, the trailer was also launched on the native video player of Twitter with personalized messages from the cast of HNY. “Red Chillies and the cast of Happy New Year understand the value of developing live, personal and interactive connections with their audience, which is only possible on Twitter.
From the entire cast and crew sharing every moment of film production on Twitter via their personal handles to their launching personalized trailers and posters on Twitter, Happy New Year has set a new national and global standard in the movie business,” said Rishi Jaitley, Market Director, Twitter India. The Trailer was also launched on the conventional platform of Youtube on all channels of the partners (Music Distributors T-Series and Film Distributors Yash Raj Films) on the film along with Red Chillies’ official channel. The total views of the trailer from all platforms cross a record breaking number of 4 million in 24 hours. HNY is slated to release this Diwali.
