Animation film on Prithviraj Chauhan soon

MUMBAI: Gipsy Video plans to make an animated film on legendary Rajput emperor Prithviraj Chauhan.

Gipsy Video is a sister concern of Shetia Audio and Video, which has earlier made a 3-D animation film Krishna…Aavo Natkhat Nandlal. Produced by Shashikant D Chedda, the animated film will be directed by Rakesh Prasad, with music composed by Bappi Tutul.  

Says Gipsy Video managing director Amit Chedda, “We have been inspired by the record sales of Krishna and have decided to go ahead with animated films for the home market.  In India, the business of animation has grown to be a Rs 20 billion (Rs 200 crore) industry. There is a rising demand for films on mythological and historical heroes, especially overseas.”
