KKKG to have 40 minutes of effects:

Remember the significant coin-spinning scene on the map of India in the beginning of LAGAAN? But very few people are aware that it was the brainchild of Pankaj Khandpur, the Creative Director of Western Outdoor, who spent almost two months observing how coins rotate before he managed the computer generated scene on screen. The shadows cast by dark clouds on the faces of excited villagers eagerly awaiting the rain in the same film, was also Khandpur’s creative imagination at work. Khandpur is now ready with the special effects of KABHI KHUSHI KABHIE GHAM, which has a record 40 minutes of special effects, though the film is an out-and-out romantic film and not a special effects’ extravaganza like E.T.. “Most people refuse to believe that a romantic film can indeed have 40 minutes of special effects. But they’ll know how beautifully visual effects are used when they see the film,” Khanpur says, adding that he has worked closely with Karan Johar from day one on every possible visual effect related aspect, from colour correction to digital effects.
