Pulimurugan Art director revealed the secret behind the ‘Dummy Tiger’!
It seems like the Pulimurgan impact is never ending in Social Media. Still, there are discussions ongoing in social platform about the movie. A new discussion started last day after Joseph Nellikkal, the art director of Pulimurugan, shared few ‘making pictures’ of Pulimurugan.
The pictures shared by him clearly shows that the tiger in the picture is a dummy. This makes few people to came forward with an opinion that the team used a dummy tiger instead of a real tiger to shoot the tiger scenes. Many started trolling Pulimurugan team.
Now the Art director himself revealed that the dummy was used only for Rehearsals. Joseph Nellikkal, the art director of Pulimurugan, finally in an interview with a popular media reveals more about the climax scene making.
“Those photos were taken during the rehearsal of climax scenes. Rehearsal of Climax scene was carried out using a dummy tiger having the same physique of the real tiger that was used in the shooting.
A ‘dummy tiger’ was made by a team from Kannur having the same physical dimensions and weight of the real tiger. It took almost 2 months to make the dummy. The usage of the dummy tiger was to mark the position of the tiger.
This type of rehearsals is very vital in making the movie perfect one. Mohanlal Sir was the one who toils the most in this. He was ready to corporate as much as needed.
Dummy tiger’s use is to know the angle and distance of the tiger from the camera. Timings were noted before the actual shoot of ‘tiger scenes’ with the help of dummy tiger.
It is not possible to use real tiger for rehearsals. Shooting the climax scene has a huge risk. Mohanlal, director as well as the whole crew was ready to take up the risk. There is huge effort behind a movie than others think. But, the audience enjoys the movie without thinking about it. Everyone has the right to criticize, but many of them criticize without knowing the truth.” – Joseph Nellikkal says.
Vyshak, the Pulimuragan director, also says the same thing. Anyway, Pulimurugan was well received by the audience and break all existing records. The movie also becomes the first Malayalam movie to enter 100 Crore club and crossed even 150 crore mark as well.
