KHAN' STEALS A PLACE AMONG TOP 3 HIGHEST PAID PREVIEW GROSSERS EVER FOR AN INDIAN FILM IN THE UK, WITH GBP 112,251!

Spectacular Music Launch on a Moving Train for Akshay Kumar’s ‘Tees Maar Khan’!

The Tees Maar Khan cast and crew booked an entire train to promote the soundtrack, in line with the theme of the film. The music launch was a grand way to promote the forthcoming festive season blockbuster, based on the character Tees Maar Khan as he launches his biggest heist yet – a  mastermind plan to rob 500 crore rupees from a heavily guarded, moving train.

 

Much loved filmmaker Farah Khan, who directed Box Office hits ‘Main Hoon Naa’ and ‘Om Shanti Om’, took a unique approach in creating an extravagant masterpiece for the film’s music launch. It’s an important film for us and I wanted to do something out-of-the-box, she commented. The train was wonderfully decorated with posters of the film in the carriages and even featured a red carpet to make the media and all those involved feel like they were on the set of a film premiere.  

 

The 2 hour 15 minute journey was filled with non-stop entertainment, with composer duo Vishal Shekhar and lyricist Anvita Dutt Gupta performing live whilst Akshay, dressed in character, and Katrina greeted the media. Akshay added, I am travelling on a train after almost 24 years!”
