Real-life often inspires reel life, especially when it comes to crime cases; and it seems Aamir Khan, too, is bitten by the same bug. The story of his upcoming film Talaash revolves around a murder, and reportedly it bears resemblance to the much-publicized Aarushi murder case. Well, we are not talking about the story or the central theme of the film; we are just saying that the style of investigation in the movie is closely on the lines of the Aarushi murder case. That's right! 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 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.
However, when contacted, the film's spokesperson refused to comment on it.
The film, co-produced by Farhan Akhtar and Aamir, also features Rani Mukerji and Kareena Kapoor. It releases on Nov 30.
