Going all out for Arjunan Saakshi
Writer-Director Ranjith Sankar, who also happens to be an engineer, is using the Internet in a big way to promote his latest film, Arjunan Saakshi.
The film stars Prithviraj and Ann Augustine.
"I have been using Facebook, Twitter, Orkut and YouTube to promote my film, which I think is something that is not so common in Malayalam. More and more Malayalis are getting familiar with the Internet, of late and it could be a great way to market a film," says Ranjith, who shot into fame with his maiden venture, Passenger.
