New Delhi: Meghna Gulzar's latest project Nyoda on the sensational Aarushi Talwar murder case that created ripples in media in 2008, is apparently been approved by the slain girl's parents Dr Nupur and Dr Rajesh Talwar who are serving the life imprisonment sentence.
Meghna Gulzar's film based ‘Nyoda' on Aarushi Talwar murder case will reportedly show Aarushi's parents' side of the story.
Parents of the slain girl have pleaded not guilty and have maintained that they are innocent. Dr. Rajesh Talwar's sister Bandana has been heading a campaign trying to prove the innocence of Talwars in court and in public.
Titled ‘Nyoda' the film captures the events following Aarushi Talwar's murder. Vishal Bhardwaj, who is writing the script for the film has been provided with all the related documents.
A leading daily quoted a source saying that some of the documents given to Bhardwaj are first hand accounts by Rajesh and Nupur Talwar. The film's plot will be based on the story provided by them and will build a defence for them.
Tabu, Irrfan Khan, Konkana Sen Sharma and Sohum Shah will star in the film.
Another film made on the sensational case is Manish Gupta directorial ‘Rahasya'. Though the makers have denied any resemblance of the case, Talwars have accused them of using the case as the film's plot. The film reportedly shows Talwars as guilty.
Dr. Rajesh and Nupur Talwar have opposed the Kay Kay Menon starrer ‘Rahasya' and have filed a court case to stop the release.
Two films being made on the sensational matter that rocked the country are said to be contradictory, one defending and one accusing the slain girl Aaurshi's parents.
