Watch Phoonk alone and win 5 Lakh

Posted: August 1st, 2008 | Author: | Filed under: Blah Blah | 2 Comments »


After horror movies like Darna mana hai, Darna zaroori hai and Ram Gopal Verma ki Aag (yes! that was a horror movie and I did not have courage to see it), Ramu is coming up with Phoonk. He has announced a prize of Rs. 5 Lakh ( half a Millon INR) who can dare to see Phoonk, all alone in theatre. and yes.. Darna Mana hai.

This is a very unique and first of it’s kind marketing gimmick and I am sure this is going to help the movie.
