Last year, Hrithik Roshan and Rakesh Roshan had wanted to bring their Krrish 3 on an IMAX format. However since the process of conversion from a regular to IMAX format needed two to three months, the idea was dropped. This time around though all preparations have been put well on time, hence resulting in Bang Bang being the only film other than Aamir Khan's Dhoom 3 (which won the IMAX race last year) by releasing in this format.

"The common factor here is the action which is at par with Hollywood," says our source, "For an IMAX experience, it is the action genre that works most and since Bang Bang has been shot on an expansive scale with quite a few wide angle sequences, it was imperative that the film was showed in the best format possible." 

Since IMAX is still in its infancy in India, only the viewers in Mumbai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Chennai and Ahmedabad would be able to relish this experience. For the rest, it would stay on to be a big screen watch. 

Confirms Siddharth Anand, the director of the film, "Yes, the film would also be arriving in IMAX. I am happy since it would be a new experience for me too. I am curious to catch the film in IMAX. It is fun to see your work as a biggest audio-video experience." 

In the last 12 months gone by, Dhoom 3, Krrish 3 and Kick have set the benchmark as far as action films are concerned. Looking at Bang Bang, can one say that it is the biggest ever action film to have come out of Bollywood? 

Says Siddharth diplomatically, "Well, it is the audience that makes the film bigger or the biggest. All I can say is that from the scale and setting perspective, Bang Bang is as big as it gets." 

"It is an expensive film for sure, though the good part is that every penny that has been spent shows on screen. Guess it would show only better on the big screen," he chuckles before signing off.
