War Dance Moves

Dancing numbers in a movie obviously come as an added perk when we talk about Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff movie. The two hit dancing songs that helped the movie to capture the audience were Jai Jai Shiv Shankar and Ghunghroo where the actors can be seen breaking a leg with their female co-star Vaani Kapoor.

Magazine Covers

Going the traditional route, the lead actors of the movie featured on multiple magazine covers, something they took to social media to promote. The covers helped establish the lead pair as a desirable couple and the lead actor as one to watch out for. This not only added value to the movie as a brand but also their personal brands. The story pegs, of course, were direct promotions of the movie.
