The NSW government has launched a Bollywood-themed tourism campaign inviting Indian tourists to “hug time” in Sydney and other parts of New South Wales.
The campaign features commercials by Sydney-based Bollywood director Anupam Sharma, in which Indians pining for loved ones in New South Wales are surprised with tickets to visit them for “jhappi time”.
