‘Toonpur Ka Superhero’ Kireet Khurana!CG Today : Welcome, Kireet. Thank you for accepting our invitation to speak with CG Today.

Kireet : Thank you the pleasure is mine.

CG Today : Toonpur Ka Superhero is your latest project which you personally created and directed. Two worlds collide in this film which boasts of live action and animation, with more than two hundred animators, artists and compositors from four studios. How did you manage such an expansive production crew?

Kireet : TKS’ journey started in 2007 Jan. TKS’ one-line concept was germinated in 2007 Jan. The writing team of Raagi Bhatnagar and Mubeen Farooqi (dialogues) got down to the arduous task of writing India’s 1st live-animation film. As we wrote, the technical challenges of the script did cross my mind frequently. But I live by the adage – Do one thing every day that scares you. Cross one barrier at a time. As the director, I had enough scary days till today! But each moment is worth living, especially because if the film does well, it will empower the entire animation Industry. The challenges were seemingly insurmountable but the light at the end of the tunnel was always visible.
