IFFI 2016: A R Rahman steals the show with his VR on Vande Mataram

NEW DELHI: Maestro A R Rahman, whose ‘Live-In-VR Experience’ of ‘Vande Mataram’ has proved to be one of the highlights of Film Bazaar at the International Film Festival of India in Goa, has said: “We had made the video, and we felt like NFDC Film Bazaar is a very interesting place. I felt very good attending the Bazaar last time, and so we decided to premiere the VR experience here,”
Speaking at the Virtual Reality Lounge powered by Samsung GearVR in the Knowledge Series moderated by producer, director and author Nasreen Munni Kabir, Rahman discussed in detail the process of creating the ‘Live-In-VR Experience’ as well as the experience of virtual reality as a whole.

Rahman and the audience shared their opinions on the technology of the future. Chris Milk’s films enjoying a special popularity, including his animated film ‘Evolution of Verse’ have received overwhelming attention at the Virtual Reality Lounge.

National Film Development Corporation Director Finance N J Shaikh said: "Again a memorable day as predicted. The star attraction of the day was A R Rahman's presence to share his VR experience which had the crowd totally charged up. The other major highlight was Philip Lee's session at the Producer's Lab. The other eminent speakers also added sparkle to the day and there was excitement and anticipation in the air, which was very palpable. VR Lounge, Viewing Room and Industry screening continued to attract maximum footfalls."
