Actor Shreyas Talpade, who rose to fame with his roles in movies like Iqbal, Door, Om Shanti Om, Welcome to Sajjanpur and Golmaal series, recently participated in an interesting Mastertalk at Group M, OMD and Loadstar, as a prelude to the Jagran Film Festival.
Jagran Film Festival (JFF), which aims to connect great cinema with nationwide audience, is now in its ninth edition.
At the Mastertalk, Talpade spoke on the importance of branded content and its impact it has on audiences and about his next directorial venture on the life of the winning champion horse, Rochester and his trainer. The film revolves around their incredible and unusual story of courage, bravery and survival.
Talpade in conversation with an oxford scholar and an alumni of IIM Kozhikode - Vishwapriya Co-founder and Managing Director of Blewminds consulting, said, "Brand integration is a great way to reach out to audiences which is captive for few hours.
