Filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is leaving no stone unturned in adding perfection to his next project titled ‘Mirziya’. Now the director has hired a special VFX team for night safari sequence.
This VFX team he has hired has worked on hit films like ‘Life of Pi’, ‘Cars’, ‘Tron’ and ‘Tinker Bell’. What impressed Mehra the most was their work on the movie ‘Life of Pi’. It was only after witnessing their potential in the film, when he took the decision of hiring them.
The movie, which is also a launch pad for Anil Kapoor’s son Harshvardhan Kapoor and Saiyami Kher, is one of the most ambitious projects of Omprakash Mehra.
The team has been hired to shoot a special night safari sequence, which happens to be one of the most pivotal scenes of the film. The filmmaker wanted to capture this scene spectacularly. Harshvardhan and Saiyami have also been trained in horse riding for the same.
Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra said, “Mirzya tries to raise the bar of how our films look at par with the best Hollywood has to offer. The team behind the visual effect is one of the best the world has to offer. I would like to offer our audiences a visual experience which they have never experienced before ”
It is Rakeysh Mehra’s first ever love story.
