Question Infinite background (just shadows)

Hello everyone, i'm doing a commercial on a cellphone. And i wanted to cast a shadow on an infinite floor, i tried to use a use background shader built-in within maya but unless my background color is black you can notice the borders of the plane and not just the shadow. I really have no time to composite layers after so i'm looking forward for a 1 render pass solution and just use the alpha of the shot in my final shot. How can I solve this? All i want is the shadow.. Thanks.
