We were tasked to drive awareness, engagement and online ticket sales for International movie release Jab Harry Met Sejal starring Shah Rukh Khan for the UK territory.

Facebook & Instagram Advertising

Using box office statistics across the UK for Bollywood movies and powerful targeting capabilities we executed a paid social campaigns to geographically target users in regions with highest percentage of Indian cinema interests, consumption, box office sales and those who had shown strong interest in the promoted movie during pre-release periods.

Google Display Advertising

We also utilised the the Google Display Network driving awareness pre-release followed by direct online sales objectives soon as advance bookings were available to be purchased online from the likes of VUE, Cineworld and Odeon chains.

YouTube Advertising

We strategically placed YouTube pre-roll advertising to drive awareness as well as direct online ticket sales when advance ticket bookings were available.


With our partners we put together a fully-responsive movie website with geolocated cinema listings and showtimes trackable to bookings through the likes of VUE, Odeon, Cineworld and smaller independents to aid a more centralised cinema ticket purchasing user journey for both offline and online marketing efforts.

"Sizeable Sales"

We were very impressed with Rick and the team at Disturb Digital. While we work on digital platforms extensively in India, this was the first time in the UK and they helped us understand, develop and build a campaign that delivered on our expectations.

They helped us drive sizeable sales at UK cinemas within 48 hours of movie release and reach over a million people in the UK with transparent reporting.

We look forward to marketing more of our movies with Disturb Digital.
