Son’s digital tribute to ANR!
There’s an important character in the historical drama and the unit is currently toying with the idea to recreate the ANR in a digital avatar.
If everything goes according to plan, the makers of Nagarjuna’s forthcoming film ‘Om Namo Venkatesaya’ are likely to pull off something that Akkineni fans would sure take a fancy to.
Apparently, there’s an important character in the historical drama and the unit is currently toying with the idea to recreate the (late) ANR in a digital avatar.
Informs a unit source, “Initially, when the project took off, there was no such idea but as the script underwent several iterations, it was then the idea struck them, thanks to the latest head replacement technology. However, it would not just be animation but a complete recreation of the legendary actor on-screen, so it is a big challenge as it involves a lot of cost and time. But the idea is still kept alive.”
The talks in this regard have been initiated with a few VFX companies who can give a prototype of the model.
