After the huge success of the first two installment of the Dhoom series, Yash Raj Films are all geared up with the 3rd part of the movie, Dhoom 3.
Yash Raj production house is very keen to protect the look of Dhoom 3 from leaking into the media. Last week, the officials of the YRF issued a directive to Prime Focus, the company which has been given the job of colour correction and editing of the visual effects for the film.
According to the directive, the colour correction and editing of the VFX footages will not be done at the Prime Focus studio but will be done inside the YRF premises. A makeshift studio for the same will be erected in the YRF premises and the required machines will be shifted there along with the team who will be involved in the project.
A source said: “YRF feels that there is a risk if the colour correction and editing is not done under their supervision. They seem to be apprehensive that too much information on Dhoom 3 would leak out.The security deployed is to be seen to be believed.”
Confirming the report, Neeraj Sanghai business head of Prime Focus says that, “YRF doesn’t want any footage of Dhoom 3 to get leaked.”
A similar directive was sent to Tata Elxsi Ltd, who has been assigned to do the VFX for the film. However Tata officials had refused to shift base.
A source also explained the reason for the refusal by Tata Elxsi Ltd. to shift the studio saying, “It is because the work Tatas is doing would have required at least 200 men to be present in Yash Raj, which would have been terribly inconvenient and chaotic.”
Dhoom 3, starring Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and Abhishek Bachchan is already creating a buzz among the audience and we can’t wait for the first look of the movie. Can you ?
