Always making headway in technology; being the first Indian Film maker to attempt Digital Intermediate and making India’s heavy duty sci-fi film, Harry Baweja now attempts another first, a ‘photo realistic’ 3D Animation Film in S-3D on Sikh history.
Baweja has produced and directed 18 features, films which were critically acclaimed, award-winning and blockbusters. Chaar Sahibzaade is the first animation film that he is making.
When asked why the director is making an animation film, Baweja said, “While going through the pages of Sikh History, as I focused on the dramatic events around the lives and sacrifices of the four sons of Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji, I knew I had the story of my next film in hand.”
“But It is an understood fact that a ‘live action’ film cannot be made on the lives of the four sons of Shri Guru Gobind Singh Ji, so animation was the only option in which format I could make a feature film on this part of Sikh history,” added the director.
He also revealed that his research took place over three years, “Finally after an intense effort of literary and technical research for over three years, the first look of the film in 3D animation, also being made in S-3D (3D projection in theatres), is ready.”
Chaar Sahibzaade has been in production since September 2012 and is expected to release in theaters by ‘next winter’.
The film will be released in cinemas Worldwide, with projection in 3D and 2D in Punjabi, Hindi, English, in various other Indian and over a dozen foreign languages.
