his newest production Agent
Vinod. The actor-producer says marketing
is expensive but vital to a film´s success.
"We are marketing the film in various ways. It
is expensive and a completely different area of

they market their movies through merchandise
and all kinds of other things. The Indian marketing
business is growing tremendously with
