The agency has tied up with film industry majors such as Ramesh Sippy, B R Films and production houses such as Target Films and White Feather. Leo Entertainment is targeting a presence in 15 films in 2002. It is in talks with as many as 20 companies for in-film advertising.

Leo Burnett's clients for in-film advertising include companies like Coca-Cola India and Hitachi.

Leo Entertainment claims to offer a range of services besides in-film advertising to production houses. The company also plans to add celebrity endorsement to its sphere of activities. The division will act as a mediator between film stars and companies looking for celebrities to endorse their brands.
