B-Town's 3D explosion

More and more Bollywood movies going the 3-Dimensional way

A movie still from Don - The Chase Begins Again
If recent developments are any indication, it looks like the film industry is going all out to add the third dimension in the forthcoming ventures. One might attribute it to the hist status of Vikram Bhatt's Haunted, that is inspiring more filmmakers to make their movies in 3D. The latest is that Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar, producer and director of Don - The Chase Begins Again, are keen to take their sequel with Shah Rukh Khan to the new level. And apart from dubbing in Tamil and Telugu, Don 2 will also be released in 3D in the two south-Indian languages, besides Hindi, on December 23. "Looking at the demand for the brand Don, we decided on the 3D format. We first did a few 3D conversion tests on the earlier Don and the outcome was very good," enthuses Ritesh, adding that while shooting the sequel, the 3D version was always at the back of Farhan's mind. 

The producer further continues, "Since Farhan felt that the new format would make the Don experience even more memorable and exciting, we decided to go ahead with the 3D format. I was in Los Angeles recently and saw some 3D conversion tests and was totally blown by the effect." 

Moving on after Haunted, Bhatt is making not one, but two movies in 3D; Raaz 3 and Dangerous Ishq. Shirish Kunder has completed a schedule of Joker, his 3D film with Akshay Kumar and Sohail Khan will start his Sher Khan with Salman Khan next year.

Coming up...
Don 2
