This is not the first film that has been created on an iPhone. But "Fursat," which stars A-list celebrities like Khatter and Bhardwaj, is the first film made in India with an iPhone 14 Pro.
During the lockdown, numerous filmmakers from various languages tested out cutting-edge shooting methods. While being confined to a room, some actor-directors committed suicide. The tech titans have begun hiring renowned directors to shoot using smartphones as a way of capitalising on this possibility such as, a short film Reflection on Isolation, which was shot on his entirely on his iPhone, legendary director Martin Scorsese discusses how “anxiety” set in during lockdown, after an initial “relief” that his heavy 2020 workload had been temporarily lifted.
The director has shot a new home-made iPhone short film about his experiences of isolation during the Coronavirus pandemic. It premiered on Lockdown Culture on BBC Two.

Bhardwaj described utilising a lightweight phone rather than bulky shooting gear as a liberating experience in an interview with the news agency IANS.
"Not just short films, I feel that the iPhone is now ready to help us create a full feature film," he remarked. "It is kind of unbelievable that we can have such a kind of stabilisation in scenes with Action Mode in iPhone 14 Pro. Cinematic Mode, or shift focus in our language, is another intelligent feature."
"A traditional film camera comes with 10 people, 3 attendants, and 10 boxes of lenses… you can’t move around. You can’t be quick. iPhone liberated me in that sense. Action mode was the biggest surprise for me. In Fursat, we’ve covered a lot of things in Action mode. If you see the raw footage, the visual is so jarring and destabilized. On Action mode, it’s so smooth. You have to see it to believe it. I’ve never had this kind of scale in my films ever before. And this can tell you about the scale iPhone can achieve," said director Vishal Bhardwaj.
The features introduced in the iPhone 14 Pro are improved upon slightly. The most recent iPhone includes a brand-new "Action mode" that lets users record fluid films by adjusting the camera for shaking, vibrations, and other motions. Both 4K at 30 fps and 4K at 24 fps are supported in videos on the iPhone 14 Pro.
