VFX for most of the big banner Bollywood films like, Delhi belly, Force, Shaitan, Agneepath to name a few. With Indian cinema leaving a hint of more stereoscopic conversion productions such as Ra.One, Viral Thakkar, CG VFX head of Pixion Studios Mumbai, downplayed the thought of Pixion Studios having a stereoscopic conversion setup in the country at the moment, due to an abundance of projects in its way. Pixion has not had the opportunity to look towards the stereoscopic fragment although the plan ultimately will include a state of the art setup available.
With us inching closer to 2012, according to Viral, Indian cinema is going to expect a surge with VFX swinging upwards. He says, "I think most of the films are going to be in 3D, we have just delivered the VFX for Don 2; the film has been converted into 3D at Reliance Mediaworks. The quality plays a very big role if you are converting the films and if the quality is not right then the audience might experience these so called headaches . I think for 2012, Bollywood is definitely going the 3D way at least where the big VFX and Bollywood films are concerned."
