Real-life crime cases have always inspired filmmakers and it seems Aamir Khan is bitten by the same bug too
The story of his upcoming film Talaash revolves around a murder and reportedly it bears resemblance to the much-publicised Aarushi murder case.Director Reema Kagti and producer Aamir, who also plays the lead in the film, have reportedly studied the way police in Delhi’s suburb Noida handled the Aarushi murder case and then how CBI went on to re-investigate it.
Aarushi, 14, was found murdered at her parents’ Noida residence on May 16, 2008. The body of her domestic help Hemraj was found the next day on the terrace of the house. Her parents are accused of murdering both their daughter and the domestic help, and destroying evidence. If sources are to be believed, the makers of the film had asked for newspaper reports on the challenging case, which continues to puzzle them. They reportedly wanted to know why was Aarushi’s case transferred to the CBI and what were the shortfalls in the police investigations.
