When it comes to digital and marketing innovations for films, Red Chillies Entertainments Pvt Ltd has been at the top of the game. They have proved it yet again with their trailer launch of Farah Khan directed film Happy New Year. Red Chillies not just involved fans in the launch of the trailer that took place in Mumbai on August 14, but also opened up many new platforms for the fans to view the trailer as the launch happened. This was the first time that newer platforms on digital medium were opened for the trailer keeping the user preference in mind. Red Chillies used all possible Digital Platforms- Social Media, Mobile (VAS), DTH& Application Economy to ensure a large user preferred reach for the trailer.

This was also done to meet the demands of fans who are consuming talent in ways that suit them. This has given the trailer an unprecedented footprint and delighted the fans,” said Venky Mysore, CEO RCE.

If this isn’t enough, the trailer was also launched on the native video player of Twitter with personalized messages from the cast of HNY. “Red Chillies and the cast of Happy New Year understand the value of developing live, personal and interactive connections with their audience, which is only possible on Twitter.
