Titled as My friend Ganesha 3 (MFG3), the film has a stimulating effect and has garnered decent reviews from all quarters. Being touted as one of the best Indian 3D animated composite films, we also get to see India's most loved deity Ganpati Bappa doing an Item number and dancing with real actors. The film boasts of casting well known Marathi actors like Sayaji Shinde, Makrand Anaspure, Himani Shivpuri, along with Baba Sehgal, amongst others.
Directed by Rajiv Ruia, the film was produced by Baba Arts and animation was executed by Radiant Animation.
Emphasizes Rajiv, on the fact that shooting a 3D composite film wasn't as easy as compared to the 2D versions, "As a director the challenge was to frame the shots and compositing live action characters with the CG Ganesha. Let it be a Dolly, Jimmy-jib or a Crane shot, tracking was a typical task whenever the camera moved with the characters."
Ajhai Acharya, co-producer of the trilogy adds, "We have already started pre-production for My Friend Ganesha 4 which we're considering completely in 3D. The last film was in composited 2D and which gave us enough experience to take our next product to the international level."
