Mumbai, June 24 (IANS) Grapevine was abuzz with news that Salman Khan-starrer "Mental" will be made in 3D. But if director Sohail Khan is to be believed, the reports appear premature and misguided.
"We are shooting the film in 2D. Some technicians in our crew have suggested that we do some 3D portions. First, let me complete my film in the normal format. Then I'll take a call," said Sohail.
A source close to the project said that at the moment, the unit's top priority is to complete the film for release Jan 24.
"Salman wanted to do a film in 3D for the longest time. In fact, when Sohail was making 'Sher Khan' instead of 'Mental', the plan was to make a big spectacular epic in 3D. But 'Sher Khan' didn't happen.
"Salman is now interested in converting parts of 'Mental' to 3D. But this is on condition that the process doesn't dent the new release date," the source added.
