Fan: Meet the man who helped Shah Rukh Khan look like Gaurav Channa


While YRF's latest offering, Fan, is an out-and-out Shah Rukh Khan film, there are many who worked silently in the background to make Fan look like it did on the big screen. One of them is Ken Metzker, a colourist for the Maneesh Sharma film. 

Metzker recently said that Fan was a difficult project because to work on because it is heavy on VFX. 

Shah Rukh plays a double role in Fan and his character of Gaurav Channa was made to look younger by digitally reconstructed the actor's face using VFX. Metzker worked in close coordination with cinematographer Manu Anand to ensure a realistic grade (colour) for both the live action and the VFX elements in the images.

"Working with Manu (Anand) was a truly enriching experience... Grading a movie as heavy on VFX as Fan is always a challenge and we worked closely together to ensure that the overall look of the movie was consistent with the director's vision for the film," he said. "We are all extremely thrilled about the final film and I look forward to working with Manu again soon," he added.

Prime Focus began work on Fan in November 2014 when 20-30 shots of the film were tested and the final look of 'Gaurav' was locked in. Over 500 hours were spent grading the VFX plates and fine-tuning the colour of the movie which released last Friday.
