As the nation awaits the launch of Indiaâs biggest & wittiest reality game show Zor Ka Jhatka with Shah Rukh Khan as host, Imagine TV has launched one of the largest marketing campaigns today. According to an industry estimate, Imagine TV is spending over Rs.10 crore to promote the show across all mass media vehicles. With this campaign, Imagine is all set to give Zor Ka Jhaka to the viewers through its many innovative marketing techniques.
In a first of its kind innovation, Imagine takes an unprecedented initiative by offering a toll free drive on Bandra-Worli Sea Link between 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm so that Mumbaikars can beat the traffic and reach home on time to witness the unveiling of Zor Ka Jhatka with the entire family on Tuesday, February 1 at 9:00pm.
Imagine TV will bear all the cost on behalf of all the commuters using Bandra-Worli Sea Link for 2 hours on today.
Commenting on this unique initiative, Nikhil Madhok - Senior Director, Marketing & Communication, Imagine says, âA free ride on the bandra worli sea-link between 7-9pm on 1st February is our way of ensuring that our viewers reach their houses on time to watch the unveiling of the launch episode of Zor Ka Jhatka. Considering todayâs pace of life, where beating the traffic to reach home on time can be very tough, our team decided to make travel for our viewers hassle free, so that they can gather together at 9:00 pm in front of their TV screens. Zor ka jhatka is our biggest launch and we want the whole family to watch it together!â
