    artiste still has the ability to converse directly with a specific demographic in a local language. That is why 25 percent of Hollywood films, 15 percent of south India films, 16% of Marathi films have brand associations

    decade.

    departure from a ‘single-event’ launch or press interaction to an entire campaign spanning
    weeks or months.

    intelligence), Lexalytics (for sentiment scores) and Buzz Engine for film promotions.
  • The capabilities of command centers and content analytics will increase exponentially and
    thus, content (shows, films, events, etc.) will be able to meet larger audiences.
