The technique labored within the movie’s favour and now its a case research for the opposite studios and makers. Talking in regards to the advertising and marketing of Freddy, producer Jay Shewakramani says, “Having Kartik on Freddy was a revelation not just in the manner he surprised audiences in a genre he’s never attempted before but also with his contribution to the film’s marketing and promotions. Very few know that it was Kartik who suggested and convinced that we do away with a trailer and instead tease audiences with just the Mini Clips and the songs. The strategy worked well for us and intensified the intrigue around the film, testimony of which is the kind of reception and love it has received.”
Creating a robust buzz in its pre-release interval is at all times vital for a movie and when the film belongs to a thriller style – making a strong buzz throughout all of the age group of lots is usually a difficult one.

In the previous, superstars like Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan have showcased experience in advertising and marketing and now taking a look at Freddy’s success – Kartik appears to be the brand new prodigy.
Adds commerce analyst Joginder Tuteja, “It’s proved time and again that the way a film is promoted has a deep impact on its performance and numbers. And Freddy is a recent example whose marketing and promotions were new but bang on. This year, Kartik has redefined movie promotions. Earlier with BB2 where he took marketing techniques to different levels post-pandemic. And now with Freddy, the actor understood the intrigue and mystery the genre had to create and spoke about it only to the length where you got a feel of the film but didn’t know its story. Kartik has an extremely sharp acumen for marketing and promotions, understanding the nuances of the game.”
Well, all we will say that this thriller has thrilled everybody with the onset of its launch and the advertising and marketing has taught everybody a factor or two.
