If our favourite Tinkle character Suppandi were to don a Bollywood avatar, who do you think would fit the bill? Ranbir Kapoor, perhaps? Animation and VFX veteran Biju D, who is all set to direct a stereoscopic 3D animation on Suppandi, disagrees. “The work doesn’t end at finishing the voice-over for Suppandi,” Biju says. “The character would demand a lot more. Bollywood stars may not be able to give me that kind of time.”
The filmmaker wants to cast a theatre person to do the voice-over for Suppandi, someone who is lean and very energetic, like Suppandi’s character. Samir Patil, the CEO of ACK Media, the developers of 3D technology for this film, intends for it to appeal to adults too, the ones who grew up reading Tinkle. And how does the creator of Suppandi, Uncle Pai react to the venture? Samir says, “Uncle Pai has had a cataract operation recently and hence is unavailable. But being an innovator at heart, he is very excited about one of his favourite characters coming to life on the big screen.” The film is set for release in November 2010.
