As Rajamouli makes his debut as a VR film director with The Sword of Baahubali, it is a huge step for many, including actress Ritu Varma (who is a part of Vikram’s Dhruva Natchathiram) who is said to be the first real-time VR character designed in India.

The teaser of the film will first feature at the Tribeca Film Festival in April, just a few days before the release of Baahubali: The Conclusion. Speaking to us about the experience of being a part of the world of Baahubali, actress Ritu Varma shares her excitement.

 

“After Pelli Choopulu, I was approached to be the face of this upcoming virtual reality film. While I don’t understand the technicalities, it was really exciting to be a part of the world of Baahubali. I obviously said yes,” sha-res Ritu, who’s recently released photo-realistic virtual reality image has been garnering a great deal of attention.

Elaborating on the experience, Ritu shares, “For an actor, it’s always exciting to be associating with anything new. And moreover, with Rajamouli sir at the helm, it really feels great.”

So what exactly was her participation in the project? “Of course, I will be giving voice to my character. But other than that, I also went to the US for a facial scan done by a special VR camera. It captured nearly 20-30 facial expressions of mine. Like I said, the technicalities aren’t my cup of tea. It was all a very new
experience,” she explains.
