Sony Entertainment Television will soon be home to the story of the most loved god, Ganesha. Going by its history of showcasing path breaking content, SET along with Contiloe Picture Pvt Ltd have come together to redefine the experience of mythological shows with, its latest, ‘Vighnaharta Ganesh’.
Showcasing the journey of the deity Ganesha, the makers have brought in top notch Motion Capture technology and animatronics which will be used for the first time on Indian Television, after being extensively used in Hollywood. This technology will replace the age old depiction of Lord Ganesha with an inert mask and bring alive the detailed life-like movements and facial expressions to the fore giving the viewers a delightful visual treat.
This technology will make the emotional journey of how Ganesha from being an ostracized child to “Prathamesh” amongst Gods more endearing and realistic experience.
‘Vighnaharta Ganesh’ will present a magical visual extravaganza on Indian television with impeccable production design, celestial costumes and ingenious audio-visual experience through Motion Capture technology.
This magnum opus is supported by a stellar star-cast that includes Uzair Basar playing Ganesha, Akanksha Puri as Parvati, Malkhan Singh as Shiv, Basant Bhatt as Kartikeya and Anand Garodia as Narada Muni.
Danish Khan, EVP and Business Head Sony Entertainment Television says, “Story of Lord Ganesh was, is and will always be relevant to our viewers across the globe. The only challenge was to present it in a never seen before avatar. We are delighted with the way our creative partner Contiloe has imagined this show visually. We are sure our viewers will enjoy both, the editorial authenticity as well as visual delight”
Abhimanyu Singh, CEO, Contiloe Pictures told, “At Contiloe we have always believed in using technology to enhance the visual experience for our audiences. This is the first time that Motion Capture technology has been used on Indian television. Vighnaharta Ganesh promises to be a milestone in use of visual effects in the Indian television industry.”
