At last the wheels of production will start rolling, with the stereoscopic animated version of Raj Kumar Santoshi’s enormous chartbuster, Andaz Apna Apna being made this year. The central characters, Amar and Prem enacted by Aamir and Salman Khan, however will differ in the stereoscopic animated version. iRock, the company which will be producing the film, have been advised not to use the actor’s faces in the animated version to avoid any legal hassles in using the superstars faces in their film.
Sid Jain, CEO – iRock says, “There are limitations to what I can do because they are such big stars. With the licensing, merchandising and other factors, it would invite legal trouble. We basically wanted unique identity for the characters, if you look at Woody from Toy Story, he does not look like Tom Hanks.”
The humorous animated version is being made in stereoscopic 3D which is currently in its production phase. Speaking about the style and the theme of the animated version, Sid says, “There is a certain exaggerated style that is there in all the characters. The animation would be more to the likes of The Simpsons or Bevis And Butthead style.”
The animated version of Andaz Apna Apna is slated to release in the summer of 2012.
