Talvar 2: Vishal Bhardwaj's film to explore the Gurgaon school murder case 

 

Filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj is all set forward the "Talvar" franchise with a sequel that will revolve around the recent murder of a seven-year-old Gurgaon school student. The director, who is also writing and producing the film, has joined hands with Junglee Pictures for the second time after "Talvar". 

"'Talvar' was about much more than the heinous crime itself, the film held up a mirror to society and exposed several loopholes in the system. 

"Such crimes shake the very moral fabric of society and need to be analysed in a much deeper sense. The world is not just black and white, there's more to a crime than just victim and perpetrator. 

"That's why we have decided to continue making true crime procedurals like Talvar," Bhardwaj said in a statement. 

The first film, directed by Meghna Gulzar, was a fictional account of true-life events revolving around Aarushi Talwar-Hemraj murder case investigation while the sequel will explore the story behind the murder of the class 2 student, whose body was found in the school bathroom last September. 

"Our journey on Talvar was more than just a film for us. It is a telling example of how big screen stories, when handled honestly and sensitively, have the power to alter the lives of people associated with the real incident. 

"We are excited to embark on our vision of compelling storytelling, yet again with Vishal Bharadwaj and taking the Talvar franchise forward," Priti Shahani of Junglee Pictures said.
