Emraan Hashmi fans can now have a golden opportunity to meet the star in person.

Hashmi will be seen selling tickets of Salman Khan-Jacqueline Fernandez starrer, "Kick" outside the Gaiety multiplex in Bandra on 26 July. The actor, in fact, will be roaming around the movie hall for about an hour, according to the Times of India.

But why is Hasmi selling movie tickets? 

The ticket-selling plan has been initiated to create a buzz among the audience about the star's upcoming film, "Raja Natwarlal" where he plays the role of a con man who uses his mind to make money.

The "Jannat" actor will apparently fool the public by giving away the fake "Kick" tickets. Considering that Hashmi has a strong followers list, the makers of "Raja Natwarlal" believe that if the actor sells these tickets, it is unlikely that people will doubt his intentions.

But it is recommended that fans should be careful while buying tickets from the actor as he might sell fake or invalid tickets and by the time the movie-goers realize, the "Ghanchakkar" actor would vanish from the scene, thus pulling off a con.

"Raja Natwarlal" is slated to release on 29 August. It also marks the Bollywood debut of Pakistani actress Humaima Malick. Directed by Kunal Deshmukh, the movie also has Paresh Rawal, Deepak Tijori and Kay Kay Menon in pivotal roles.

In the recent past, many Bollywood celebrities are seen attempting some innovative promotional strategies in order to pull the crowd to their films and recently, actress Vidya Balan's promotional ideas during "Bobby Jasoos" created a lot of buzz.

Balan who sported different disguises in the movie, went on to portray several avatars while promoting her film. At one occasion, the "Kahaani" actress sported as a beggar and fooled Hrithik Roshan during his shoots for "Bang Bang" and at another instance, she disguised as the twin sister of comedian Palak (Kiku Sharda) and reached the sets of "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 7" and stunned the audience and the entire team of the dance reality show.
