Does this face sell? Of course it does! When Hrithik Roshan
can apparently attract aliens into this world, grabbing eyeballs from a few thousand tourists should not at all be a problem for the superstar. And that's exactly what the government of Maharashtra believed when they approached Roshan to become the face of tourism and 'attract' visitors to their sights and sounds.
Actor Amitabh Bachchan
was the first to don this avatar when he was seen promoting tourism in a unique advertisement, while walking through the various attractions Gujarat had to offer - including Bachchan as their brand ambassador.
West Bengal was quick to follow the trend when they roped in actor Shahrukh Khan as their state's image for popularity, and now Maharashtra attempts to join the list by taking Roshan on board. However, the star has been busy with his shoot for Krrish 2
, therefore has not been able to make the final call.
The government agency would eventually like Roshan to take a few a days out from his busy schedule to work on an extensive campaign for the state, which consists of plans to shoot a documentary film with the star in various attractions such as as Kolhapur, Mahabaleshwar, Raigad and Mumbai, with the addition of a photo shoot. Sources claim that although our dear Duggu has a hectic schedule until 3rd October, he is more than keen to squeeze in dates for the campaign as he truly believes that this opportunity favours him a great honour.
Jagdish Mali of Jagdish Mali Productions Agency strongly feels that Maharasthra's tourism needs to be promoted soon, and as there is no firm confirmation or denial from Roshan due to his determined schedule, they will have to make things work according to their needs and an announcement regarding the same will be made shortly.
Now, the obvious question is that will the agency wait for Roshan's shoot to be over or will they replace the face of the state with another star?
We at BollyCurry believe Roshan will undoubtedly highlight the beauty of Maharastra to the tourists - like we say 'Hrithik is a magnet for attraction', right ladies?
