'Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai': Salman Khan spends a whopping Rs 7.5 crore for a 20-minute VFX-heavy climax sequence?


Bollywood superstar Salman Khan plays a cop once again in the recently-announced Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai. The film marks his return with director Prabhdheva after Wanted, which saw him play an undercover cop, and Dabangg 3, which saw him return as Inspector Chulbul Pandey. Talking about the film, Salman had claimed that Radhe will be a 'baap' in the cop-action drama genre.

Recently, it was learnt that Salman along with his co-star Randeep Hooda will be shooting the second last schedule of the film in Goa. where the two dashing actors will be shooting for one of its kind face-off. Now adding to the excitement, a report in a leading daily stated that the climax of the actioner has been shot entirely with chroma key technology as it will be a VFX-heavy sequence. Reportedly, the cost of the sequence has been mounted at a budget of around Rs 7.5 crore. "Shooting in chroma key is an expensive process that only big-ticket filmmakers can afford. Baahubali [2015] and its sequel [2017] were two of the recent films that employed the technology. While the process of shooting a video on a blue or green background hardly burns a hole in the pocket, the lighting required for chroma is expensive. Then comes the VFX part, where the background is removed digitally and replaced with the background of one's choice," the daily quoted a trade source as saying.
