While Bachchan launched the games, Devgan launched the ringtones of the movie. Besides the game and ringtones, audio-visual promos of the film too are available for download.
Bachchan said, “It’s encouraging seeing how the industry is evolving due to its openness to the latest technology. RGV Ki Aag is very special to me and essaying the role of Babban has been a challenge. I hope that the character of Babban will form a long lasting impression in the minds of the audience and the products and content developed by Mauj will go a long way in helping keep Babban alive in the collective consciousness of India. My personal favourite ringtone would have to be Mehbooba.”
Varma had earlier too tied up with Mauj during the release of Sarkar. “Mobiles have become more than just a means of communication. They have become entertainment consoles for millions of people in India. With the content developed by Mauj, the characters of Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag will come alive in the hands of the audience and such innovative promotions are a part of our promotional strategy,” Varma said.
