HERO7 Hits Silver Screen in Bollywood’s ‘Malang’
In a Bollywood first, T-Series Film used GoPro to capture and immerse viewers in the upcoming adrenaline-fueled romantic thriller “Malang.” The film is set to hit the silver screen in India on Feb. 7. and with it comes a tumultuous love story packed with hair-raising action, which prompted director Mohit Suri to enlist the help of GoPro.
HERO7 Black was used to capture the film’s intense moments, from kite surfing in picturesque waters or cruising on scooters, that characterize the love affair between leading actors Disha Patani and Aditya Roy Kapur. The rugged, waterproof design paired with HyperSmooth stabilization delivers cinematic footage that brings the action and adventure to life as the film travels across iconic destinations in Goa and Mauritius.
“Malang has served as a path for me to return to the genre I enjoy the most,” says director Mohit Suri. “Travel and adventure are an integral part of the movie along with action, romance and intense drama. The travel experiences in the movie have come alive using the GoPro. Shooting with this versatile camera gave us an opportunity to capture the most authentic moments in unique perspectives, which I am confident that the audiences will love.”
Outside of the adrenaline-fueled moments, Aditya Roy Kapoor’s character is also shown documenting his life experiences on a GoPro.
“GoPro enables people to capture and share their passions,” says Todd Ballard, Chief Marketing Officer for GoPro. “Our cameras not only let you capture extreme outdoor and sports activities but also are capable of recording more personal, travel experiences and simple daily life adventures. A GoPro camera goes places where a smartphone or DSLR can’t. It is amazing to see that our pocket-sized 4K camera footage has made its way into a leading Bollywood-grade movie production. Malang is raising the bar of unique content for next-gen Indian movies.”
