Andaman and Nicobar Islands, India

Since the story is set in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, the production team of ‘Kaala Paani’ decided to shoot the series on location across the islands. Situated at the junction of the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea, it is a union territory that consists of 571 islands scattered in close proximity to one another. Port Blair, the capital city of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, serves as one of the primary production locations with the filming site setting up camp in different parts of the city.

For instance, the campuses of Jawaharlal Nehru Rajkeeya Mahavidyalaya (JNRM Port Blair) at MQ82+7GQ, South Point in Shadipur and Government Girls Senior Secondary School at MP8X+PCH, Rajiv Gandhi Nagar, both in Port Blair, feature heavily in various important scenes. The filming unit also utilizes the terrains of the district of Haddo and Corbyn’s Cove Beach for shooting purposes. During the production process of the debut season, the cast and crew members could be spotted taping several pivotal beach scenes on Swaraj Dweep as well, including Radhanagar Beach and Kala Pathar Beach. Apart from that, a few other beaches across the islands also appear in some pivotal sequences — Chidiya Tapu Beach, Collinpur Beach, and Munda Pahad Beach.
