Action packed drama with flying cars, death defying stunts and explosions have been a singular feature of a Rohit Shetty film. Even as Singham Returns continues to enthral the audience,the credit for creating such drama on a huge scale goes to Reliance MediaWorks who has worked on the VFX of the film. While some of the scenes in the film were shot on locations with actual stunts being performed by lead man Ajay Devgn, the makers decided to increase the excitement quotient for the viewers by using interesting special effects.
Reliance Media Works, was roped in to provide their expertise contributing to almost 90 minutes of screen space and 2500 VFX shots that took the team almost three months to create. Based entirely in Mumbai, the greatest challenge was to shoot large scale action sequences on the busy streets of the city.While the scope of work ranged from elaborate sequences to set extensions, the effort is evident in the action scene shot on the Bandra-Worli Sea Link, that was completely created by using computer graphics and VFX. The scene involved missiles and high on speed vehicles which were created solely with special effects. Naveen Paul, Creative Head – VFX at Reliance MediaWorks said, “Rohit Shetty was clear about the requirements from day one, that of bringing to life an entertaining action packed film. We are all proud of the results.”
