~…and it might just come true!~
Mumbai, 28th October, 2009: Aftab Shivdasani, the actor turned producer wants you to make a wish and he might just make it come true! Yes you heard that right. Aftab has tied up with Zapak.com, India’s leading gaming portal to create the official website for his forthcoming movie ‘Aao Wish Karein’.
This website is like no ordinary film based website. In fact to the contrary it has no information regarding the movie. It is a wishing website which probes you to make a wish. It’s as simple as that.
You log on to www.aaowishkarein.com and make a wish. This wish can then be circulated on social websites where your friends and dear ones give you good wishes for your wish to come true.
Today the vitual route is taken very seriously by most of the movies. Movie based websites have been common to all new releases but this is a movie website with a difference. The interactive nature of online movie promotion, both, in terms of providing instant response and eliciting responses, is a unique quality of the medium.
Aftab Shivadasani is very excited about this unique website for his movie. He said, “Being the producer of the movie, I was involved in all decisions associated with it. Internet is a very important medium to reach out to all movie lovers and I wanted to do something different in this space. With Zapak we have created a very novel movie website and I want to ask everyone to check it out and post their wish. As I really believe that wishes do come true.”
Arun Mehra, Chief Marketing Officer, Zapak Digital Entertainment Ltd. said, “The format of aaowishkarein.com is very interesting, it offers novelty and an engaging activity for the users. It helps them interact with the characters in this fairy tale film alongside film information. Zapak.com now is increasingly becoming a preferred partner for digital strategy and internet marketing needs of today’s movie marketers”
