Bobbys new film is releasing on August 19th and is gaining high-profile publicity in London due to its chart-topping soundtrack and the association with Ken Livingstone, the Mayor of London due to it bagging the good going promotion. Congestion is a real problem in London, said Bobby Deol, the main actor of Barsaat. Its a shame because Londons a really nice city and I love coming here, but congestion on the roads and environmental pollution sometimes hide the vibrant city that lies beneath. The films producer and director Suneel Darshan said: Harrow has always been good to me. I have one of my main distributors there and its a great place with a diverse population. Ive chosen to support good going because its an important initiative and is for the betterment of London, and anything that benefits London benefits my audience, myself as a visitor and the world. Harrows good going efforts were recently nominated for a Sustainable Transport Award and shortlisted as one of the three best boroughs in London. The good going Barsaat promotion makes it Bollywoods first ever film to tie in with a London-wide initiative that targets everyone living and working in the Capital. Barsaat releases on August 19th at cinemas nationwide.
