More than a dozen movies different languages — Punjabi, Tamil, Telegu, Bhojpuri, Bengali and Marathi — are scheduled for release this year.

Regional films in India, along with Hindi cinema, have enjoyed the domino effect of publicity through OOH media – accelerating its growth. As per the experts, the figures for the regional film market will rise by 20-25, which has created ample of opportunities for outdoor advertising. Global Advertisers, MD-Sanjeev Gupta says “In terms of reach and revenue, OOH media provides excellent mix of media tools to producers of regional films. Its cost-effectiveness has made this medium popular in Marathi & Bhojpuri film genre. I have observed that Indian film industry is just not Bollywood, it’s far beyond it, even regional films have good budget for promotion in OOH, Internet or Mobile. 80% Marathi movies comes to our stable for outdoor publicity, so I believe OOH effectively contributes to the success of regional films at box-office.”
