Social Samosa takes a look at Tumhari Sulu’s movie marketing strategy on social media.
Vidya Balan starrer Tumhari Sulu hits the screens today. The excitement of watching the National Award winning actress after a long time on big screen was at its peak, ever since the launch of it’s first trailer two months ago.
Tumhari Sulu is a story of a suburban Mumbai housewife, who loves listening to the radio and taking part in contests. It is how one day she ends up winning a pressure cooker through a radio contest and her trip to the radio station, lands her the job of a RJ. The movie revolves around it. The trailer has garnered more than 8 million views on social media.
The film has taken a very interesting content marketing route by tying up with online channels and since the film is about the life of an RJ, they have partnered with a number of radio channels as well. The endorsements received from celebrities online, have further helped in creating more positive conversations around the movie.
