GoPro delivers the punch in Bollywood’s ‘Malang’


Bollywood’s latest “Malang” is set to hit the silver screen on February 7, 2020, to deliver a classic, tumultuous love story packed with hair-raising action, which prompted director Mohit Suri to enlist the help of GoPro, Inc. (NASDAQ: GPRO).

HERO7 Black was used to capture the film’s endearing love moments to the crazy adventurous outings, like kite surfing in picturesque waters or cruising on scooters, all of which skillfully characterizes the chemistry between lead actors Aditya Roy Kapur and Disha Patani. 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.

Director Mohit Suri, says, “Malang is as much about fun, travel and adventure as it is about action, romance and intense drama. We have managed to capture a lot of this adventure and excitement using the GoPro cameras. A versatile camera like this lets us get up close and personal with the action happening and almost makes the viewer feel like they’re a part of all the fun. I’m sure the audience will love this unique perspective which we were able to get by using GoPro cameras”

Outside of the adrenaline-fueled moments, Aditya Roy Kapur’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.
