CID Coming to Big Screen

After Khichidi, now its turn for CID to go into big screen with an item number and all kind of masala which is required for a Bollywood film. Producer B.P. Singh also says that the CID will have a lot of action, drama, and also spice up the movie version with an item number. Singh says,

“Our ‘C.I.D.’ movie has been in the pipeline for the past three years. We have to innovate a lot on the technology and the storyline. The project is still in the writing and pre-production stage. But we plan to release it in 2012.”

Five characters – ACP (assistant commissioner of police) Pradyuman, senior inspector Abhijeet, senior inspector Daya, inspector Fredericks and Dr. Salunkhe – have been a staple on the show since it began and will be seen in the movie as well.

Singh continued saysing,

“We are hoping to chalk out a very different investigative case for the film version. Plus we want a story where we can add some songs. We want it to be zabardast (fantastic) and commercially viable. So, apart from lots of action scenes, we would also try to put in an item number.”

He is more than glad that actor Dayanand Shetty, who plays the brawny senior inspector Daya, is currently learning how to dance in the reality show “Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa 4”.

“We would love to have Daya do an item number in the film. We are looking forward to his victory in ‘Jhalak Dikhlaa Jaa’. It will be a lot of fun if he wins because people are amazed how this elephant is dancing! But to be honest, even in all our parties, Daya is the one who adds colour with his graceful dancing and we hope he does that in the movie too.”

The show, which first began on Sony TV in 1997, is about a team of detectives working for the Crime Investigation Department (CID) in Mumbai. Their main aim, of course, is to unravel murder mysteries.
