Mumbai: In what has turned out to be an out of the box tactic for gaining viewership, popular news channel Times Now has reportedly put up #Lalitgate merchandise for sale on the online shopping websites Flipkart and Snapdeal. Fans will very soon be able to purchase these products online.
Arnab Goswami inaugurated Times Now’s new retail brand “Lalitgate” in Mumbai studios last night in the presence of several noted outrage patrons. Brand #Lalitgate promises a wide range of products for end user’s consumption, with a quality that will have a lasting effect on consumers and good enough to permanently register the last month’s episodes of News Hour in their minds.
Faking News reporters had the privilege of taking a sneak peek into the first set of products that will soon be available online for viewers to purchase. Here’s the Faking News Exclusive on #Lalitgate products.
