Director Shankar's upcoming film 2.O, the sequel to the Rajinikanth starrer Endhiran has cinema lovers in the grip of excitement.
The team had previously put out a video on how 2.O has been made. On Saturday, they released another video which gives us a glimpse of what has gone into the making of this magnum opus.
Shankar, superstar Rajinikanth, Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar who plays the antagonist, cinematographer Nirav Shah, and lead stereographer Ray Hannisian share their experience of working on the film.
Unlike many films which are shot in 2D but are converted to 3D, 2.O has been shot directly in 3D with the latest technology. As Hannisian puts it, while shooting 2D, one shoots an image but while shooting in 3D, it's a space that one is capturing.
Shankar promises that the film will give viewers the experience of being there in the scene and that the movie has been made this way not for the heck of it but because the script demanded it.
He further says that he hopes 2.O will encourage more 3D movies to be made in India and that hopefully, more theatres will make modifications to accommodate such films.
An excited Rajinikanth can be seen laughing and enjoying himself on the sets. He adds that he is waiting eagerly to see how people will react to the film.
