“That’s why we have decided to continue making true crime procedurals like Talvar,” Bhardwaj said in a statement.The first film, directed by Meghna Gulzar, was a fictional account of true-life events revolving around Aarushi Talwar-Hemraj murder case investigation while the sequel will explore the story behind the murder of the class 2 student, whose body was found in the school bathroom last September.

“Our journey on Talvar was more than just a film for us. It is a telling example of how big screen stories, when handled honestly and sensitively, have the power to alter the lives of people associated with the real incident.
