So this is my first commission. I got to do this as part of the promotional deal with the Bollywood movie Tera Mera Ki Rishta.
Lately i have been busy managing my site www.punjabiportal.com which has become exponentially big in last few months. Back in January I was contacted by the director of the movie to help promote their movie online and become official media partner. As part of the deal i designed and launched the Movie Launch Center Website, interviewed the stars and ran some contests. As the facts would have it, Tera Mera Ki Rishta is the First Punjabi Movie ever to be promoted online. This kind of feels historic
As part of the whole deal i also proposed to sketch the pencil portraits of the starring lead. This was more thena welcome and so i sketched the portraits of Jimmy Shergill and Kulraj Randhawa. Here is Jimmy's portrait and i have already gifted it to him. To be honest Jimmy holds a more then moderate reputation in Bollywood. He is currently doing a movie with Amitabh Bachhan and one with Shahrukh Khan.. So, im guessing he is gonna hit some big chords now.
The good news is that this has opened a plethora of work for me in domestic market. I have already got 2 more movies to be promoted. In September i will also be promoting Punjabi's first music album to be marketed online. Most of the big names in Punjabi entertainment industry have got associated with my site.
