Partnering with Dharma Productions and Director of Photography Manush Nandan, we helped to create the visual masterpiece, ‘Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani’.


Project: Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani
Client: Dharma Productions
Service: VFX

We utilised a sophisticated array of VFX tools, each meticulously chosen to ensure the highest quality and seamless integration within the film's narrative. Our team delivered over 1,300 shots which encompassed set extensions and incorporated CGI vehicles in a chase sequence.

Seeing the Director's creative vision come to life in our recent project was a testament to the seamless execution of VFX at FutureWorks. The narrative centered around Rocky and Rani's love story, navigating familial and societal challenges. Our VFX Supervisor, Vinay Chuphal, describes the role of VFX as “subtly pivotal in enhancing the story and conveying complex emotions”.

Despite the movie not being inherently VFX-heavy, the expansive sets required technical solutions to match. Our VFX talent shone through in extending the grand scale of sets using techniques that seamlessly blended with wide-angle shots, providing an immersive experience for the audience. Notably, our expertise in VFX set extension came to the forefront in the musical scenes, adding aesthetic appeal and emotional depth to the songs.
