The CID team
Plans are underway to shoot the Sony crime weekly CID in Pakistan. And if things go right, it will be a first for the small screen.

When asked about the move, the reticient producer-director B P Singh admits, "Yes, we are working towards the goal.

We have already done the initial rounds of meetings at this end; now the Pakistani authorities need to provide the green signal."

CID, which has been on air for seven years, has ACP Pradyuman (Shivaji Satam) lead a task force that cracks the toughest of cases every week.

Singh, whose name is synonymous with crime and horror shows on the tube, informs that Shashi Ranjan is co-ordinating from this end. "We have already been to New Delhi and met the concerned officials. There is an okay from this end; we are awaiting a favourable response from the Pakistani authorities."

"We are looking at a mixed cast from India and Pakistan. The ancient backdrop of cities like Lahore looks inviting enough," he adds.

Incidentally, as part of the seventh anniversary celebrations of CID, earlier this year, Singh had shot a special series on location in Meheran fort in Rajasthan which was aired in April.

Last year, he had made it to the record books by shooting a single shot 112 minutes episode of CID in Lonavala.

Indian Idol Abhijeet Sawant makes his acting debut in the show in the June 17 episode.
