In a bid to capture a huge market for Bollywood blockbusters, Google's video website YouTube has got special promotional rights for the ambitious Ra.One, the next movie starring the Hindi film industry's biggest superstar, Shah Rukh Khan, as its India chief executive Rajan Anandan said he expected more recruitments ahead.
Google has tied up with Red Chillies, the producers of the film, and will release exclusive content for the film via YouTube.
Meanwhile, the search giant, which has four commercial centres in India - Bangalore, Hyderabad, Delhi and Mumbai - is hiring robustly across business units, especially for YouTube.
"At present we have 2,000 employees across various centres in the country. We are looking at significantly increasing this number over the next few months," said Anandan. "We want to enable the Internet ecosystem in India to go from 100 million users today to 300 million users by 2014 and YouTube will play a big role in this."
