The spectacle and dazzle of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s epic vision has just gone up by many notches.
The filmmaker and his co-producers Viacom 18 have decided to convert Bhansali’s latest work Padmavati into the 3D format.
Says a source close to the development, “We know we’re racing against time as the release is just a little more than a month away. But when we saw what Sanjay Leela Bhansali has achieved on the screen this time we immediately decided to take the experience to another level.”
As I write this, the best technicians from Hollywood are being negotiated with , to fly down to Mumbai and make the city their home for the next one month as Padmavati goes digital
So what prompted the decision to suddenly to convert ?
Informs a source, “Two things. Firstly the epic design of the film warrants another dimension of viewing. Bhansali’s 2002 epic Devdas has also been converted into 3D , though it hasn’t been released as yet. When Bhansali saw what a dazzling achievementDevdas had turned into in 3D he resolved to give Padmavati the same design. Secondly Shankar’s 2:0 the Robot sequel has also been shot in 3D. Padmavati when it opens onDecember 1, hopes to reap a larger profit than 2:0 in January 2018.”
