How VFX will transform Shah Rukh Khan into a dwarf in his next film

Shah Rukh Khan plays a dwarf is Aanand L Rai’s untitled next. The superstar revealed that his firm, Red Chillies VFX, is working on the special effects of the film, and he is certain that it will change the way technology is used in Indian movies.

A source working on the project reveals that the makers have used the same technology used for Hollywood films like ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘The Lord Of The Rings.’

 “The makers will not superimpose SRK’s face on a dwarf actor. They will shoot using Forced Perspective, a technique that employs optical illusion to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. It will make SRK look shorter,” says the source, adding that oversized costumes and shoes will add to the desired look.

The movie will also feature a revisited version of Shashi Kapoor’s hit track, ‘Hum Ko Tum Pe Pyar Aaya.’ “SRK will be seen dancing to the classic from ‘Jab Jab Phool Khile’ (1965). It’s an amusing sequence in the film.”
