Recently, Meghna Gulzar launched the trailer of her next-‘Talvar’ in the city. The venue was set up like a crime scene, as the Film is based on the Arushi Murder case. The Film is written by Vishal Bharadwaj and co-produced by Junglee pictures and him. Lead actors Irrfan, Konkona Sensharma and Neeraj Kabi were present, along with director Meghna Gulzar and writer co-producer Vishal Bhardwaj. Konkona plays the distraught mother and Neeraj the father, while Irrfan plays the role of an investigative officer. Vishal clarified, “We have not taken their permission. When we started researching on the case, we found bizarre contradictory things and each point of view had its own conviction. So, we thought why not present all these three versions, like the film called Rashomon. It had three different point of views of a murder. So, we have presented the conviction of all three“ ,When asked if the Talwars had given their consent to make this film.

Irrfan gave a heads up to the film because he found the story very powerful. he added, “When I read this script, there were different versions of the story , but still there were such powerful emotions in it. That is what compelled me to do the film.“ Konkona added, “The script has looked at every possible aspect of the investigation.“ Further Meghna added, “With this, I have stepped out of everything that is comfortable and that itself was exciting.“ Talvar is scheduled to be premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival next month. Talvar is slated for a 2nd October, 2015 release.
