Telstra, in partnership with Mind Blowing Films, launched Chai with Bhai in July – giving one lucky winner a chance to fly to Mumbai and meet Bollywood superstar Salman Khan on the occasion of the release of his latest movie – Kick.
To enter this contest, participants had to email one question they would ask Salman Khan if they were to meet him. The contest received an overwhelming response from the South Asian community in Australia with over 1200 entries recorded. Of these, one entry was selected as the grand winner, based on the creativity of their question.
Melbourne’s Amrita Kambatta was the chosen winner of Chai with Bhai! She flew to Mumbai ready with her winning question for Salman– “Kick is about living life to the fullest and doing things on impulse just for the ‘kick’, what is the riskiest thing that Salman (you) has (have) ever done just for a ‘kick’?” Salman Khan had a hearty laugh to her question and said that he was very responsible, always just worked and went home and never did anything risky and had a big chuckle!
Telstra General Manager of Marketing, Alister Park said, "Our aim at Telstra is to connect people to what they love most everyday – their families, their friends, their work, their entertainment and their world. Chai with Bhai proved to be an exciting contest that helped connect Amrita with her favourite superstar back home, while giving the wider community in Australia an opportunity to participate and re-live the connection they have with Bollywood.
“On behalf of Telstra, I congratulate the winner of Chai with Bhai and look forward to celebrating the vibrancy of Indian culture and entertainment with more exciting events and experiences in the future – so stay tuned!"
