Salman Khan has played the entire media as fools to market his movie – He hardly cares about Tiger Memon !

There is a reason why Salman Khan is a superstar in bollywood – its not just about his style of acting – its about astute marketing as well. Of course a launch at Eid is a master-stroke – it’s not about religion – its simply ticket sales. Have you seen the lines outside the Gateway Of India after Eid (lakhs of people). After weeks of fasting , people are looking for avenues of entertainment – even if it mean going to the Gateway of India for the nth-time and that too in the rains. Salman captures this crowd very easily and converts them into movie-goers – to see his new launch.

While all that is fine – what are all of these Tiger Memon tweets about ?. Salman probably as of two weeks ago knew only of Tiger Shroff or Tiger Woods – but hardly Tiger Memon !!!

So here’s my theory:

Salman’s Bonhomie With The BJP Is Well Known

Bajrangi Bhaijan Has Now Played For a Week

And after the first week usually the ticket sales drop – so additional marketing is required. Enter the for-hire BJP Youth wing.

To be honest though – the crowds hardly looked like the BJP Youth Wing – it felt more like the supporting actors and dancers from bollywood and anyone from the streets of Bandra including tourists. Controversy created – Salman in front page news and Bajrang Bhaijan ticket sales increase !

Tweet retracted – religious harmony stressed all in the spirit of the movie. Basically Salman says go see my movie and make me more money !

Easiy done and a master-stroke !!! Even the protesters (so called BJP Youth Wing) retract as if nothing happened.

Salman Khan has played the entire media as pawns to market his movie – Possibly the media does not even care, it willfully tags along – it simply wants a (any) sensational story ?
