Vishal Bhardwaj’s Talvar 2 to be based on Gurugram murder case


The world is not just black and white, there’s more to a crime than just victim and perpetrator. For Talvar 2, Bhardwaj will explore the story of a 7-year-old who was brutally murdered in the school premises in September 2017. Chhuriyaan stars Sanya Malhotra (of Dangal fame), Radhika Manan, Vijay Raaz and Sunil Grover. Vishal Bhardwaj spoke about the film and said, “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. For all the latest Entertainment News, download Indian Express App

Talvar was praised for its Rashomon-esque storytelling where the same episode is shown through different points of view and with each take, the viewer gets to decide who they believe in. The prime accused, in this case, was a school senior. 2018-04-26T15:34:06+05:30″>
