Nikhil Advani is all set to become the first Indian director to make a 3D digital animation film. His film Delhi Safary, which is scheduled to release in September, is being converted for a 3D experience.


The success of the recent Hollywood 3D animation movies made the director Nikhil Advani think. "Recently, 3D films like Ice Age 3, Monsters vs Aliens, How To Train Your Dragon have done well in India.


This inspired Nikhil to convert his film to 3D. And, of course, the success of Haunted proves that Indian audiences like the 3D experience," said the source. When contacted, the director admitted that he is indeed converting Delhi Safary. "Yes we did start the film as a normal animation film.


But some months ago, we decided to convert the film into 3D. We have been working to match it to international standards. So yes, Delhi Safary will indeed be India's first 3D animation film," said Advani.

The director also denied that his film has been delayed. "Well it's true that we started four years back, but then animation takes time. Finding Nemo took seven years. Making an animation film is a different ballgame altogether," he added. Delhi Safary was the first project that Advani started working on after Salaam-E-Ishq.

The story is about a group of five animals from Borivali National Park going to Delhi to meet the Prime Minister, pleading that they stop encroaching forests. Actors like Akshaye Khanna, Govinda, Suniel Shetty, Boman Irani and Urmila Matondkar have lent their voices to the film.
