shahrukh-khan-3d-printed-statueIn case you’re not familiar with Bollywood, it’s the term used to describe the Hindi language film industry in Mumbai. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, the productions featured romance and action films, and during the mid-1970s, the genre expanded to include themes featuring violent gangsters and bandits.

The films entered the Western consciousness with the release of Deewar, directed by Yash Chopra and written by Salim-Javed, and it was a gritty crime film which pitted a policeman against his brother – a gang leader – based on the life of real-life smuggler Haji Mastan. The film was described by director Danny Boyle as being “absolutely key to Indian cinema.”

Now Red Chillies VFX, a division of Red Chillies Entertainment, a visual effect company founded by Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan, are making a splash in 3D printing.

Khan, referred to as the Bollywood Baadshah, is the subject of a 3D printed, life-sized statue made by Red Chillies VFX and Autodesk India.  The statue was both designed and 3D printed in India, and is quite impressive.  The level of detail depicted in the piece is sure to wow fans.  The exact method of 3D printing has not been stated, however, it’s safe to say that it was not printed in a single piece.

“It is overwhelming how technology has gone forward,” Khan says. “I am grateful to be a part of this amazing technology. This is outstanding and I am dying to show it to my kids. Its silver and shiny statue of mine in my classic pose. I want to thank Keitan, Harry, the Red Chillie VFX team and Autodesk team who have worked on it.”

Khan is the featured player in his film production house based in Mumbai, India, and since 2002, Red Chillies Entertainments has produced a variety of programs. From huge blockbusters like ‘Om Shanti Om’ and the critically acclaimed ‘Billu’, Khan’s company has stayed in the headlines.sharukh kahn-3d-printed-model

Back in 2005, the film ‘Paheli’ was India’s official entry to the Oscars. Red Chillies also features a state-of-the-art visual effects studio, Red Chillies VFX. It’s a private company which has pulled down a group of special effects awards from the film industry, and working from a 10,000 sq. ft. studio facility, the company boasts some of the best talent and equipment in the country.
