Akhil Spending Own Money For Promotions?
Handsome Akkineni hero Akhil’s debut film ‘Akhil’ will be released within a week’s time. The young lad is leaving no stone unturned to make the film a memorable launch pad for his career. Akhil has been aggressively promoting his debut film since the film’s shoot entered its last leg. He even did a whirlwind 3-day promotional tour in the US and released the film’s audio album in three American cities, which no Telugu film’s unit has done so far.
However, after several rounds of TV and print media interviews, came a sudden halt to the promotions with the film’s postponement and there has been a long silence about the film. Now that the film is back on track, Akhil is again back to promotions and he will soon organize a promotional tour in Warangal and Vizag, covering both Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. Not stopping here, Akhil has chosen an innovative way to promote the film on social networking giant Facebook.
For the last few of days, release day posters and stills from Akhil movie have been splashing on the walls of Facebook users. All these ads are sponsored by Akhil’s official Facebook page. Naturally, these are paid ads and Akhil must be shelling out a bomb to Facebook to utilize the wall space. No doubt that this new trend will add further more noise to the already growing hype for the film.
