Tv Show CID might turn into a movie


Indian television’s one of the best and longest running detective show “CID” might soon turn into a movie says producer BP Singh.

More action, a unique storyline and different CID experience with the same cast is what BP Singh promises.

“There will be a film on `CID` with the same cast, but one main villian will be from outside,”

Singh told reporters.

“The cast will be the same, but there will be additional cast for villains. We need to see who we can afford. There will be outstanding action scenes to make it different. The story, treatment action should look different from our regular episodes. We need to present a story that is remarkable and unique and different from the regular `CID`,”

he said.

“Theoretically, it should start by the end of this year. The channel owns the rights…Even if the channel says yes today, we would be able to start early next year,”

Singh added.

Shivaji Satam, Aditya Shrivastav, Dayanand Shetty, Dinesh Phadnis, Vivek V. Mashru, Hrishikesh Pandey, Narendra Gupta and Shraddha Musale are the important members of CID team.

Launched Jan 21, 1998, on Sony, ‘CID’ has so far aired more than 615 cases in over 824 episodes.
