Pellichoopulu Girl Turns Rajamouli’s Samaya
Despite her acts in films like Baadshah and Yevade Subramanyam, actress Ritu Varma got the much needed breakthrough romantic comedy “Pelli Choopulu” that has hit box office as simple film and scored a stupendous hit. And now, she has created another sensation.
While we have seen the likes of Deepika Padukone as animated characters in movies like Kochadaiyaan, now we have SS Rajamouli making a Virtual Reality film “The Sword Of Baahubali” for which Ritu Varma is taken up as lead girl. She plays the role of Samaya in this short movie and to create her 3D character, Rajamouli and Co have sent her to USA as well.
Looking at the results now, we have to say that Ritu Varma’s transformation as Samaya in this Mahishmathi kingdom based movie is terrific. She revealed that a special facial expression scanning camera has picked up nearly 30 expressions of her which are then transformed to the digitally created Samaya character. And then, Ritu will be dubbing herself to give that reality to the character she played digitally. Director Rajamouli wrote the complete screenplay for this digital film which was carved in the USA at a couple of world class studios.
While the teaser of this VR film is making everyone go mad for its technical and creative brilliance, the film will be first inaugurated at Tribeca Film Festival in New York.
