The government of Gujarat has spent around Rs 40 crore for tourism promotion campaign ‘Khushboo Gujarat Ki’ featuring legendary star Amitabh Bachchan.
In a written reply to Congress MLA Babubhai Shah, the Tourism minister said that while Shri Bachchan didn’t take a single pie to do the campaign, a Mumbai based company that produced the advertisement has been paid.
Shri Vyas in his answer said that the government of Gujarat spent Rs 97 lakh to provide various facilities to film star Shri Amitabh Bachchan during his Gujarat visits. The minister added that services of firms like rising son film India private limited, O&M, Mansi movies, Saubhagya ad service, Betacam and promotion in print media, electronic media and outdoor advertisement cost the government of Gujarat Rs 38,52,85,017 under this campaign.

Even Gujaratis didn’t know until Khushboo Gujarati Ki was spread by Modi and Bachchan that Gujarat really has any tourist spot. Being Gujarati, if you were ever asked by non Gujaratis or non Indians “so which are the tourist spots in Gujarat”, in past you would have thought for few minutes and said, ummm I don’t know.
Now you can proudfuly say we got White Rann of Kutch, Geer, Saputara, Somnath and so on. I still don’t count Dwarka in this list because it is thoroughly filthy and dirty place. There are no official tourist guides or libraries with reliable information on history of Dwarka so cann’t recommend it to non Indian friends.
