MUMBAI: Reliance MediaWorks, the techno-creative provider and part of the Reliance group delivered breathtaking VFX for Rohit Shetty’s Singham Return starring Ajay Devgan and Kareena Kapoor.

Crossing the 100 crore mark in just five days after its release, Singham Returns 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.

Talking about the use of VFX in large scale director 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.”

While the work ranged from elaborate sequences to set extensions, the highlight of the work done by the company 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 also 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 90 minutes of the run time. It took the company about three months to create, wherein Reliance MediaWorks creative head for VFX Naveen Paul was personally present on the sets to ensure the scenes were shot in sync with the VFX required.

Commenting on the efforts, Paul 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.”

Excited and happy with the results, Reliance MediaWorks CEO Venkatesh Roddam said, “We are glad to have partnered with Rohit Shetty for Singham Returns. The team headed by Naveen Paul and Nishit Shetty put in three months of work involving extensive detailing and we are glad the efforts have shown result.”

Paul credits the team for being able to deliver detailed VFX shots within such a short time frame. This team comprises VFX supervisors Ranadheer Reddy and Pankaj Kalbende, production head (VFX) Vinoth Ganesh, VFX producer Abrez Mohd, concept and mattepaint head Chandrakanth Shenoy, CG supervisor Guru Prasad and matchmove head Sohel Shaikh.
