‘In­ci­dents like the Aarushi mur­der case should never hap­pen’

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Ac­tor Konkona Sen Sharma (right), whose up­com­ing film is based on the sen­sa­tional Aarushi Tal­war mur­der case, feels such an in­ci­dent should never hap­pen to any­one in real life, so that there is never a need to make a movie on it.

The dou­ble mur­der of 14-year-old Aarushi and the do­mes­tic help of the Tal­wars, Hem­raj Ban­jade (45), in Noida in 2008, forms the crux of this Meghna Gulzar-di­rected film.

“This should never hap­pen again ... A crime is com­mit­ted on a young girl where we don’t know whether the ev­i­dence is com­pro­mised and we also don’t know if jus­tice will be served or not. This has been a trav­esty (of jus­tice),” says Konkona, adding, “If a 14-year-old girl dies, you should know what is go­ing on and the guilty should be pun­ished. This should never hap­pen and hope­fully we should never make a film like this.”

Talk­ing about play­ing Nupur, Aarushi’s mother in the film, the 35-year-old ac­tor, known for her award-win­ning act­ing skills says that she found this role chal­leng­ing. “I found it (film) very in­ter­est­ing as a per­former. It is an in­ves­tiga­tive thriller, we have shown var­i­ous as­pects of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion,” she says.
