Blockbuster – Profile:
Star Worldwide Infotech Ltd is a pioneer in diverse business encompassing film production, education, television content state-of-the-art post production facilities and a modern preview theatre.
SWIL has decided to break new grounds with an aggressive foray into the publication business, with the launch of trade magazine Blockbuster.
The magazine is published by Managing Director of Star Entertainment Worldwide Pvt. Ltd and IMPPA President T.P. Aggarwal.
The idea is to combine a feature magazine with the business of entertainment. To be able to analyze trends in filmmaking and gaze at collections of different genres. In present times, even those not connected to the cinema business are curious to know how every film is fared. Blockbuster will provide collection figures of new releases and at the same time travel into the minds of writers and filmmakers to understand what they are planning.Today the success of a film belongs as much to the technician as to the distributer and exhibitor. Blockbuster will provide an equal platform for all of them and those unsung heroes behind the scenes to express themselves.
