Now that the producers of Ghajini have claimed to make profits of more than Rs 1 billion in the first five days of its release, it's time to move the film's success to another level.
A PC game, named Ghajini The Game, featuring Aamir Khan, is ready to hit the market this week.
Earlier the video game was scheduled to hit the market a month before the Ghajini release.
"But we wanted to polish it up more, and use it as a USP after the film's release when audiences are really interested in the chase aspect of the plot that manoeuvres the game," says Ghajini producer Madhu Mantena.
Designed by Shashi Reddy, chairperson of FX Labs and Ghajini's co-producer Madhu Mantena, Ghajini The Game was executed at a cost approximately Rs 30 million.
Mantena said: "It's as slick as any cat-and-mouse PC Game with a computerised Aamir Khan looking like a replica of what he did in Ghajini (same hairstyle included) chasing the villains. Basically the game borrows the Ghajini plot from the time Aamir's character is hit on the head to the time he catches and kills the first villain."
Other games in the series will carry the chase further.
"The idea is to take the success of Ghajini further. And that's why the player has to get Ghajini The Game right in 15 minutes. Or he has to start again. That's the time-span for which our hero regains his memory, remember?" Mantena said.
