Meghna Gulzar's earlier directorial venture Talvar became a highly acclaimed film. Revolving around the infamous Aarushi Talwar case or the Noida double murder case, it had the top-notch thrill and power-packed performance. Looks like Meghna is set to recreate a similar experience; however, this time around a top cop!
Mumbaikars would be familiar with the name of Rakesh Maria, former Commissioner of Mumbai police. In his tenure as a cop, Maria has had he numerous interesting encounters. After the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, he was made the investigation in-charge and interrogated Ajmal Kasab. He also has the 2003 blast case to his credit. He earlier has been the Deputy Commissioner of Traffic Police and the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Crime.
“I am happy to re-live the journey, especially when piloted by a brilliant and sensitive director like Meghna Gulzar, and a production house of the calibre of Reliance Entertainment’s Phantom Films. More than the nostalgia, it’s also a valuable opportunity to place before the people the extraordinary work of the Mumbai Police when facing tough challenges and working against all odds," the former commissioner said, reports HT.
Interestingly, Maria was also handling the Sheena Boran murder case. For reasons unknown, he was pulled off as the CP.
Meghna's last outing Raazi received immense praise from the critics and the audience alike. Let's hope this one tops the game as well!
