The first episode of Sony's new thriller show will be based on the death of 650 birds at the same time...
Sony and Fireworks Productions' Surya The Super Cop launches tonight at the prime time slot of 9 PM. The show which holds the distinction of being the first daily thriller show on Indian television will kick-start with a very unique story wherein nearly 650 birds fall from above and die at the same time.
We hear that the creative team got into some very extensive research work to shoot this particular scene.
Our source states, "The scene is set for a wedding to happen. Just before the muhurat, two deaths happen, and at the same time nearly 650 birds fall from above into the wedding premise. The modus operandi used for the deaths of the birds and humans are the same. And it is up to the investigative team headed by Surya (Harsh Chhaya) to get to the culprit".
The creative team had to make an extensive study on the type of migratory birds they can show in the scene. Since the shoot had to happen just before the sunset in the evening, they had to be clear about the kind of birds that can be shown at that particular time of the day. All the birds used for the scene were artificially made.
Talking about this, Amitabh Raina, Creative Director, Fireworks Productions told us, "Yes, we had to go thro' an extensive planning to shoot this scene, especially because we had to show the death of the birds just before the sun could set. So it was very crucial to get the timing and shot right. We had to make the fake birds of various types by doing a lot of research. The type of feathers to be attached to it, the kind of birds to be shown etc was worked upon. All the 650 birds had to fall at the same time and this was a very tough shoot to take. Mr. B. P. Singh directed it, and the scene has come out well".
