Reliance MediaWorks, the media and techno-creative solutions provider and a part of the Reliance Group has delivered breath taking VFX shots for Rohit Shetty’s directorial venture and latest release ‘Singham Returns’.
Crossing the 100 crore mark in just five days after its release, Singham Returns starring Ajay Devgan and Kareena Kapoor is the story of D.C.P. Bajirao Singham(Devgan) and his quest to track a black marketer with tremendous influence within the political system.
A gripping story backed by power packed performances and high octane action is the distinctiveness of a Rohit Shetty film, which makes VFX an integral part of his movies. Based entirely in Mumbai, the greatest challenge was to shoot large scale action sequences on the busy streets of the city.
While the scope of work ranged from elaborate sequences to set extensions, the highlight and evidence of the stellar work done by the Reliance MediaWorks team is evident in the action scene shot on the Bandra-Worli Sea Link, some of which was live while most of it was created using computer graphics and VFX. The scene involved missiles and high on speed vehicles which were created solely with special effects.
In total Reliance MediaWorks has worked on 2500 VFX shots for the film, which constitutes almost ninety minutes of the run time.The broad yet exciting scope of work took the Reliance MediaWorks team about three months to create, wherein the Creative Head for VFX at Reliance MediaWorks, Mr. Naveen Paul was personally present on the sets to ensure the scenes were shot in sync with the VFX required.
Indian film cinematographer and director of Singham Returns, Rohit Shetty said, “Singham Returns required shooting grand scale action scenes which required intensive VFX. The team at Reliance MediaWorks has done a splendid job, the outcome of which is realistic action packed scenes.”
Commenting on the efforts, Mr. Naveen Paul, Creative Head - VFX at Reliance MediaWorks said, “Rohit Shetty was clear about the requirements from day one, that of bringing to life an entertaining action packed film. 2500 VFX shots required intensive work by the entire team. We are all proud of the results.”
