RJ-turned-actor-director, MJ Srinivas has completed shooting his third project. And the name has been generating curiosity. Birbal Trilogy, whose tag line is Case 1 - Finding Vajramuni, completed the last schedule in Mysuru recently. With this, the team has wrapped up the preclimax shot.

Srinivas, who is satisfied with the way the film is taking shape says that it has a lot of theatre artistes and technicians who are marking their debut with this film. "They brought in a fresh atmosphere on the sets of the film," he says.

Srinivas has always attempted bringing in novel concepts in his films. This time, the director has introduced a concept he terms freeze shot.

"Technically, till date, there have shots, which are frozen. However, for Birbal, there is a sequence where all the characters and elements in the background including the rain drops will be frozen. Only one character will be exempt, and that's me, who plays an investigator. I run in 24 frames. We actually blocked the popular Bhasyam Circle for a week to shot this sequence," he says.

He also reveals that the DI is currently being done in the USA. "It is only a attempt to come out with good quality work. The texture of the film depends on the colouring," he explains.

Birbal's music is by Kaalacharan, and background score by the same makers who worked on Sonu Ki Tweety Ki Sweety, the recording for which is taking place in Mumbai. Produced by Chandrashekar under Crystal Parks Cinemas, begins with Birbal - Case 1 Finding Vajramuni which will be followed by Avran Bit Evaran Bit Avaryaaru and Turuvemane.
