I told that I shall come to you with more updates on Diamond Necklace. Well, here I am, as promised!
First, some details about the Pooja and shoot. Pooja was held at Dubai on February 13, 2012 in presence of Dr Iqbal Kuttippuram, (who has done the scripting) and team . There were many guests including UAE nationals at the occasion, and I thank them. Samir Tahir did the first shot featuring Samvritha Sunil, who is one of the heroines of the ‘Diamond Necklace.’ After three days of busy shoot, the crew went outdoor. About 90% of the film will be shot in Dubai, and the rest in Kerala. As I have already mentioned, Gauthami, Anushree, Rohini, Sreenivasan and Jagathi Sreekumar also do important roles in Diamond Necklace .
Now, let me share some unforgettable moments during shoot.
when we went outdoor, we were at the eye of a storm!! The unexpected ‘Shamaal’ (desert wind), made our task difficult and we doubted whether we could complete the shoot in time. Anyway, despite the sandstorm that fanned desert dust and sand across the city, we continued shooting, and did some important outdoor shots that are crucial to the movie. The production crew struggled a lot to safeguard the equipment.Fahad Fazil and Samvritha Sunil, who were also at the receiving end of the Shamaal, took `the Nature’s freak session’ in good stride!
Shooting for the movie is progressing in Dubai. ‘Diamond Necklace’ is slated for release in May 2012.
