The films; ‘No Problem’ starring Anil Kapoor, Akshaye Khanna and Sanjay Dutt, ‘Agent Vinod’ starring Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor, ‘Desi Boyz’ starring Akshay Kumar and one more under production movie.

This pro-active marketing strategy will be beneficial for the channels to further strengthen their viewership and at the same time ensure successful monetization of content for us, thus making it a win-win situation for all”.
