It’s raining VFX in Bollywood

The latest of all trends that has caught Bollywood in its clutches is the world of special effects. From scenes being re-shot to delays in release dates, makers are now vouching for special effects.

Even though VFX in Thugs of Hindostan has faced a lot of flak, upcoming films like 2.0 followed by Kedarnath, Zero and Simmba, are brimming with special effects.

The film 2.0, starring Rajinikanth and Akshay Kumar, has apparently spent over Rs 100 crore only on special effect.   The Abhishek Kapoor directional Kedarnath starring Sushant Singh Rajput, too has major flood sequences being shown using a lot of special effects.

In Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero, directed by Aanand L. Rai, where he is seen playing a dwarf, special effects came into play every time SRK was on screen. Simmba, directed by Rohit Shetty, starring Ranveer Singh too relies heavily on special effects.

“Most films today have at least 20 per cent of the film’s budget allocated for special effects. Kedarnath and Simmba are surely in that bracket. However, when you talk about films like 2.0 and Zero, the VFX budgets would be way higher and consume a majority of the film’s budget,” opined Atul Mohan, editor of Complete Cinema.
