The 3D trend is beginning to pick up in Tamil cinema. Our filmmakers are noticing the crowds that throng the cinemas to watch Hollywood 3D flicks and are looking to bank on that demand. First it was director Shankar who re-released the blockbuster Sivaji in 3D recently and now we are hearing that one of last year’s surprise hits ‘Kaanchana’ is soon to go 3D as well.
It has been reported that famed Telugu producer Bellamkonda Suresh is backing the project that involves converting the entire original footage into 3D format. He admits that it is indeed a long and painstaking process and would take almost 6 months before it is complete. As a value-add the re-release will feature a brand new song with Raghava Lawerence and Lakshmi Rai. The comedy-horror that was memorable for casting Sarath Kumar in a bold role will be delivered in Tamil and Telugu under the 3D format.
As we reported earlier, Bollywood was bowled over by ‘Kaanchana’ and Sanjay Dutt had reportedly agreed to reprise Sarath Kumar’s role. It will be interesting to see if they will shoot the film in 3D at one go.
