how is it possible to get such effects ?

This is a pic of Aqah Permadi,who is believed to be the one who taught Rarindra Prakarsa his style ( Rarindra nevermentioned about him in his interviews though).

What was really done on the greenish background?Is it just PS gradient?Or more than that?Anybody know how to get that kind of toning and hues?? TIA.

Any suggestion, guess etc would be apperetiated.

I think you should change the way you want to learn photoshop. I can tell because of this question you posted. If you learn first what each tool, filter and adjustment does, an image like this one (easy one), will be really easy to do for you.

Something is greener than usual, other things are not: Answer, selective adjustment. Which one? You'll figure out once you learn the tools.

Now I'm not usually one for an "in-camera" response, but I just learned a neat trick that would help with this. Use a magenta gel over the flash that's hitting your models, then correct the magenta shift with using the white-balance eye-dropper. This will throw a green tint over the background with better transitions then you'd get only with photoshop. This trick combined with some basic photoshop would probably create a higher quality look than the image you posted, but I can't be sure - never tried it!
