Mahesh Bhatt came up shocked telling about the story he had written strikingly similar to the Sheena Bora Murder case that has been making the headlines.
Filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt had penned down a story titled, “Ab Raat Guzarnewali Hai” back in May which he is shocked to admit, has striking similarities with the Sheena Bora Murder case in which the former CEO of INX Media, Peter Mukherjea’s wife Indrani Mukherjea, is accused of murdering her daughter Sheena Bora. The case is also being probed to give it an angle of Honour Killing by the police.
Mr. Bhatt said that he had written the script for his protege Guroudev Bhalla. “I empathise with the living hell Peter is going through and this is not a pathetic attempt to ride on his unspeakable tragedy. But bizarre as it may sound, fact is that this is a case of life imitating fiction rather than fiction imitating life,” Bhatt said in a statement.
Without revealing much details, Mahesh Bhatt said that the movie based on the script will be produced by Dhaval Jayantilal Gada. It is a story of crime and passion, soaked in blood, revolving around a mother and daughter.
“The story grew out of my imagination. I never imagined that it could be unfolding for real in a high rise in our backyard where the rich and powerful reside. The coincidence between a pure work of fiction and real life staggers me, it makes me shudder. No, my work is done. I only wrote this story for my protege. The film should roll in December. I never imagined that it would explode for real as the mother of all crime stories” concluded Mahesh Bhatt.
