New Delhi: Ishaan Khattar and Wamiqa Gabbi’s Fursat is India’s first film shot on iPhone. Released today, the movie proved that the camera isn’t all that.
Vishal Bhardwaj’s science fiction is creating a buzz in not only the film industry but also in the technology sector. The main reason for this is that the movie was shot on iPhone 14 pro.
Fursat, being a non-commercial film, has been released on YouTube. With this project, iPhone has once again proven its prowess in terms of camera technology.
Movie cinematographer Swapnil Sonawane told that even he wasn’t expecting iPhone to handle the complicated shooting so well.
Fursat is a 30 minutes long non-commercial movie, which has all elements of a Bollywood movie. The story revolves around Ishaan Khattar, who is a time traveler, and his race against time to save his lover Wamiqa. Wamiqa is getting engaged on a train that will be attacked by dacoits in no time.
