Nothing is impossible for filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma, whose film Not A Love Story hits the theatre today. Apart from shooting the film in a digital camera to cut down the budget of the film, the filmmaker has also shot a few part of the film on high-end mobile phones.
There is a scene in Not A Love Story wherein Mahie Gill is seen in a mall buying polythene bags and big kitchen knife, so that they can chop off the dead body. The digital camera were not allowed in the Mall premises, on the suggestion of the Cinematographer Zaryan Patel, the cameraman shot the sequence with an iPhone4.
Armed with the iPhone4, the cameraman shot Mahie inside HyperCity. The shot was done in 15 minutes. Later when Ramu saw the footage, the filmmaker was more than impressed. RGV felt as if the footage had been shot in CCTV cameras and thus decided to treat the scene similarly in the film. The footage was then edited to make a 10 second scene in Not A Love Story.
Mahie confirms Mid Day, "The whole film is shot in guerrilla style. However, for this particular scene, we were a bit scared of getting caught. Thankfully, it went smoothly and the result is looking, good too."
