The fil outcome despite the kind of ad spend on such acts, is the merit of the product itself. If that is attractive enough, no amount of paid publicity shall enhance it, and no amount of the same shall have the capacity to demean it ,” he added.

Chopra who has produced, directed and written “Broken Horses”, his first Hollywood project, invited Amitabh and Aamir for the film’s trailer release here on Tuesday.
