Bollywood filmmakers are slowly heading towards technical finesse perfection in their films. The latest to join this group is director Priyadarshan.
For his upcoming film AAKROSH, Priyan needed to light an entire jungle for a particular scene which was very crucial to the film. Since lighting an enormous jungle is no mean task, a new technique was adopted for this purpose. Priyadarshan specially called in for a special kind of light called the ‘balloon light’ from Germany. This special balloon light is capable of lighting up huge expanses as it gives a ‘low moon’ kind of effect.
Even though it cost the makers a mighty amount (60-70 lakhs), they did not want to leave any stone unturned in making the scene look as perfect as possible! Needless to say, the end result is something worth watching out for!
