According to a Bollywood Hungama report, director Vishal Bharadwaj recently shot his next film Fursat starring Ishaan Khattar and Wamiqa Gabbi on an iPhone. Talking to portal Khattar shared, “Vishal sir was enjoying himself; he was like a child on the sets with an iPhone. We all had fun on the sets of this film, which had an iPhone camera.”
Talking about his experience shooting the film on an iPhone, Bharadwaj said, “A traditional film camera comes with 10 people, 3 attendants and 10 boxes of lenses… you can’t move around. You can’t be quick. iPhone liberated me in that sense. I’ve never had this kind of scale in my films ever before. And this can tell you about the scale iPhone can achieve.”
Speaking about shooting the action scenes in the iPhone 14 Pro without a gimbal, Bhardwaj said, “Action mode was the biggest surprise for me. In Fursat, we’ve covered a lot of things in Action mode. If you see the raw footage, the visual is so jarring and destabilised. On Action mode, it’s so smooth. You have to see it to believe it.”
Fursat has dropped today on apple.com and its YouTube page.
