Billboard of the week: Son of Sardaar’s TV premiere campaign

Billboards and Bollywood have a longstanding courtship. OOH medium has always been largely marked by billboards because of the glamour quotient. It is the dream of every actor to be on the billboard, especially in a city such as Mumbai. During the peak of Indian cinema – which is the 70s and 80s – large hand painted billboards outside theatre halls gave an unforgettable visual treat to the onlookers, taking the definition of film poster art beyond advertising and transforming it into a cultural icon.

Things have changed in the business of cinema but the dynamics of this medium still retains effectiveness and charm. Today, television channels make a lot of noise using outdoor for the world premiere of various movies that they acquire.
