Illusion Reality Studioz partners with Kunal Kohli for Ramyug

The series titled 'Ramyug' releases on MX Player on May 6.


Mumbai: After successfully venturing into the digital space with the web series State of Siege: 26/11, Illusion Reality Studioz has added another title to their list - MX Player’s highly anticipated series Ramyug.

Directed by Kunal Kohli, the magnum opus is the latest visual interpretation of Ramayana that uses modern technology in a never-seen before manner to narrate the epic. The MX Original series is also the first mythological web series that has been produced from the ground up and starts streaming on MX Player on 6 May.

Backed by Abhimanyu Singh, Illusion Reality Studioz has become the go-to destination for animation and VFX needs across industries, with some popular projects under their belt including the Mahayoddha Rama, Battle of Saragarhi 21 Sarfarosh, Vighnaharta Ganesha, ‘American Pie Girls’ Rules’ and ‘Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy’.

Illusion Reality Studioz, CFO and business head, Nitin Dadoo said, “Lately, there has been an increasing demand for quality content strengthened by advanced visual effects. At Illusion Reality Studioz, we aim to extend our services to create high-quality narratives across mediums. Ramyug is the first mythological show to hit digital screens and it gives us great pride to be in the premier league of creating game-changing and cutting edge content. We will continue to expand our visual effects division to support storytellers”

Contiloe Pictures was the first to pioneer real-time facial motion capture on the small screen. It has also received the National Award in the Best Animation Film category for the 3D animation feature Mahayoddha Rama. In March, Contiloe Pictures rebranded its VFX division to Illusion Reality Studioz, led by Nitin Dadoo.

“The team at Illusion Reality Studioz (Contiloe Pictures) has been reliable and extremely proactive, given the pressure of content, delivery, and time to present world-class visual effects. They have truly become a VFX - CGI outfit at par with the best in the world. The detailing in their work is immaculate. Their contribution to Ramyug cannot be described in words. From CGI to VFX, they have created memorable content and truly brought Ramyug to life”, filmmaker Kunal Kohli said about the association.
