Shivarajkumar and Ramya starrer Aryan promises to offer something new for Kannada film lovers. The movie will have a virtual stadium with crowd stimulation, which is a first for any Kannada movie. The movie is based on sports and therefore, it was necessary to use latest technologies to make it look realistic.
A Bangalore-based firm is said to have done the graphics for the movie. While talking to a leading daily, Giridhar Gopal from the firm said, "A 60-member team of roto artists, compositors, 3D moulders, animators and matte painters worked on creating a virtual stadium, crowd simulation and multiplication of more than 70,000 people inside the stadium. There are two such scenes. One is a National Games race, which is a four-minute scene. And then there is the climax race at the South Asian Federation Games, which clocks eight minutes."
The firm has previously worked on Bollywood movies such as Bhaag Milkha Bhaag and Chak De! India. Giridhar said that the Aryan team was very professional in their working style and that it was a pleasure working with industry stalwarts such as Shivarajkumar and Ramya. Giridhar first approached Dr. Rajendra Babu, but due to his untimely death, the plans got delayed. However, Chi. Gurudutt assured them full co-operation.
Further talking to the newspaper, he said, "We were first approached by Dr Rajendra Babu sir. Unfortunately, we lost him midway through the film. Chi. Gurudutt, who took over then, ensured that nothing would be compromised. Shivarajkumar also took interest and he was one of the driving forces behind the computer graphics. He oversaw every shot, and made his suggestions. When we saw him in those scenes, he literally was in the skin of his character, looking very athletic. The same can be said for Ramya, who looked every bit of a professional athlete."
