Girish Kumar soon makes his debut in Kumar Taurani's Ramaiya Vastavaiya directed by Prabhudheva. The director Prabhudheva, DOP Kiran Deohans and the rest of the team after several days of brainstorming finally zeroed in on a special introductory scene that is completely novel to Bollywood.
Marking his first ever appearance on the big screen, the debutante will be seen in a dare-devilish surfing sequence helmed by Leon Ingram and team, that hasn't been attempted in films so far.
Says a source, "Girish Kumar will be introduced in a special surfing scene which has some breath taking under water shots. Prabhudheva wanted to do something novel with Girish and after several discussions the scene was decided. Several experts from across the world were hired for the scene's execution including Leon Ingram and his team of stunt rigging personnel. So a backup support system was ready on location to help in the execution of stunts. Though by the time of shoot, Girish had himself mastered the art of surfing and personally did all his surfing stunts.
Says producer Kumar Taurani, "Bryan is very good at shooting underwater scenes. Girish didn't want a stunt double, so he underwent full-fledged training in Mangalore."
Shot in India and overseas, Girish Kumar & Shruti Haasan starrer Ramaiya Vastavaiya directed by Prabhudheva is scheduled to release July 19, 2013.
