In a couple of shots in 'Acharya', Chiranjeevi is seen as a young Maoist. A young look was created with the help of VFX. The deployment of the de-aging tech has backfired. Audience members are not thrilled at all. In fact, in an FDFS show at Prasads IMAX in Hyderabad, some giggles were heard.
Many Netizens are of the opinion that the call made by Koratala Siva and his VFX team has resulted in shoddy output. The shots could have been avoided, they are saying. "Chiranjeevi could have made his director replace them in the post-production stage," they are saying.
Since the shots have made some people laugh, the de-aging tech could have been used for a fun scene. At least, that would have ushered in some entertainment.
