Amazon Prime Video’s new show ‘The Family Man’ has been seen promoted in a quirky style on Twitter. It recently came to light that actor Manoj Bajpayee is essaying the role of Srikant Tiwari, the mystery man. After the revelation, Srikant Tiwari started testing Indians on their ability to keep a secret. He sent out a tweet, which compelled his fans to like and retweet his tweet and follow his handle in order to get a secret link of the trailer.
Within 24 hours of the tweet through Amazon Prime Video and Manoj Bajpayee’s handle, over 18k Twitteratis interacted with the tweet and showed their excitement for the trailer release. Almost 20,000 Twitteratis are playing the secret link game with Srikant in last 48 hours.
As promised, Srikant shared the link of the trailer with those who had completed the previous tasks. On September 5, users received a DM with the link to the YouTube unlisted trailer and a video from Manoj Bajpayee with a catch that compelled the viewers to keep the trailer a secret and not to share the trailer link with anyone.
Within two minutes of sharing the DM, the link of the trailer was leaked. The viewers were unable to contain their excitement and keep the trailer a secret, and started sharing the same with their followers, thus proving that India can’t keep a secret.
Adding a layer to this activity, Srikant taunted all those who don’t follow the instruction of following the Prime Video India handle.
While other Twitteratis followed Skrikant’s instructions, they shared their excitement and trailer reviews on their handles, without sharing the link and trying to prove that India can keep a secret!

Apart from this, the #SrikantKuchChupaRahaHai campaign has been driving eyeballs. It all started with Srikant hiding little details across other Amazon Prime Video social accounts.

This activity created a lot of curiosity with cricketers such as Gautam Gambhir and Suryakumar Yadav, celebs like Shilpa Shetty, Preity Zinta, Zareen Khan, Siddhant Charturvedi, Aayush Sharma, journalists like Ayaz Menon and Faridoon Shahryar, brands like Fassos, Sony Music, Zee Studios, Zee Music Company, etc., engaging in a friendly banter with Srikant decoding his mysterious tweets.
