The vision of director Anup Bhandari, created by art director Shivakumar, is getting reinstalled by Saravana Prasad, the founder of Innovative Film City. Prasad had recently visited Annapurna Studios, where the shooting of Phantom is currently going on and was astounded by the artwork created for the film and he decided to recreate the feel of the Phantom World at Innovative City studio in Bengaluru. Shivakumar will be taking the responsibility of recreating a similar set-up. The film is in the last stages of its current shooting schedule, and the team is transporting the entire property worth `40 lakh, which includes artificial trees, costumes, bikes cars used by Sudeep to Bengaluru. 

“I was so impressed by the vision of the makers that I didn’t want the set to go waste. So I have decided to mirror a similar set-up at Innovative Film City, which will be a permanent one. This will enable the common people to experience the World of Phantom, and they can even experience the ride that Sudeep is enjoying at present," says Prasad The recreation work will cost approximately `2 crores. “The team is currently dismantling the sets, after which it will be brought to the city, and work will start in the coming days,” he adds.
