Describing the shooting of her forthcoming film Creature 3D as a "very tough experience", actress Bipasha Basu hopes that Indian viewers will appreciate the work of indigenous technicians. Creature 3D brings to Indian audiences a fresh genre of cinema.

The movie, slated to release on September 12, is a creature-based thriller directed by Vikram Bhatt.

In the film, Bipasha's character, Ahaana, battles a creature based on Indian mythology, as she transforms from a "vulnerable and lonely" girl to a powerful woman. (Also Read: Bipasha Basu Wants to Star in Film Like Bridget Jones's Diary)

"It is India's first creature-feature. For an actor is all about reacting to a situation and who is in front of you. But for the first time there was no one in front of us so we had to imagine everything.

"Shooting part was extremely difficult for the actors and the technicians. I hope we being Indians support the film because of the efforts put in by Indian technicians. The creativity is indigenous and the team is Indian, no foreigners," Bipasha said.

"They were shooting with 3D camera, which is completely different from the normal process. Post that there was 11 months of post-production where the creature was actually made. Every scale, every speck of saliva of the creature was imagined and created by Indian technicians. No foreigners," Bipasha explained.

The storyline, she said, is India-centric and based on the concept of Brahma-Rakshas or demon spirits of Hindu mythology but if one were to consider the creature-generated from special effects-in isolation, the beast is much like those in the Western films.

"I will not compare the film as a whole, with the West, because the sensibilities are very different. The story line is India-centric but just the creature is very much like the West," she said.
