PVR most trusted in entertainment; Salman ranks second.

Six cinema display brands, seven cinema personalities make it to India’s 1000 most trusted.

India, 30th January 2012: If the fact that India produces the largest number of movies annually and has the highest number of watchers has any meaning, it is this. India loves its movies. It is only natural that India votes 16 cinema related brands among its most trusted 1000. The most trusted entertainment brand among the list of 16 is PVR Cinemas, followed by popular actor Salman Khan who ranks second. This revelation was a part of a research published by Trust Research Advisory (TRA) titled ‘The Brand Trust ReportTM, India Study, 2012’. The report is based on the proprietary 61-component Trust Matrix of TRA. The research collected 2 million datapoints through 12000 hours of fieldwork and is dedicated to analyzing and measuring the trust placed on brands by 2718 influencers across 15 cities.

The list contains six cinema display brands, seven cinema personalities (including one singer), two cinema production brands and one brand predominantly into music. Elaborating on the  findings, N. Chandramouli, CEO, Trust Research Advisory said, “Cinema is a make-believe medium, but it also has a larger-than-life aspect of belief in it. World over, citizens’ trust on actors is evident from the second career in politics that many actors take up. However, it must be kept in mind that trust is a dynamic entity, which sees sharper responses among personalities than among anything else. Here, the trust fall can be steeper than the rise.”

The Brand Trust ReportTM is priced at Rs. 10,000/- and is available in major stores and at the offices of Trust Research Advisory.
