These days actors go out of their way to promote films. Even superstars like Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan have to attend fan meets and social events to publicise their films. In one of his interviews, Amitabh Bachchan spoke about how such publicity drives become taxing for actors like him. Nevertheless, it seems like this trend is here to stay.
So, like everybody else, Sidharth Malhotra and Jacqueline Fernandez also decided to promote their next, A Gentleman, in a unique way. They took a bike ride in the famous Mumbai monsoon. It gave them a chance to remind the viewers about their film. It’s a different matter that the high humidity levels would have caused them a lot of problems during monsoon.
A Gentleman, directed by Raj and DK, is about a simple guy who has to channel his inner gangster to impress his girlfriend. Sidharth and Jacqueline have shot in Mumbai and Mauritius for the film.
Scheduled to be released on August 25, A Gentleman is expected to help Bollywood sail through a tough time when high budget movies are biting the dust.
