Indian cinema yet to get accustomed to visual effects: Srinivas Mohan

Visual effects designer V. Srinivas Mohan, known for his work in Tamil blockbusters such as 'Enthiran', 'Sivaji' and 'Boys', on Tuesday said the visual effects scene in India is still in its nascent stage because people have not familiarized themselves with the technology.

"Cost has never been a reason for not using visual effects in Indian cinema. We don't give the technology its due respect and resort to using shoddily presented visual effect scenes because we hesitate to know more about the technology," he said.

He was speaking about visual effects in India and making of 'Enthiran' on the opening day of Media and Entertainment Business Conclave (MEBC), a Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) initiative.

"If we are ready to use visual effects even for a micro second in a film, the impact it renders on the audience will be amazing," Mohan added.
