Ace filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj is all set to helm the sequel of crime thriller Talvar; which will be based on the murder case of a seven-year old boy at a Gurugram school.

After the surprising success of Talvar, the makers of the film have decided to give the film a sequel, which will be helmed by the acclaimed director after delivering memorable films like Maqbool, Omkara and Haider.

Tentatively titled as Talvar 2, the film will be based on the school murder case of a seven-year old boy in Gurugram, which shocked the nation in 2017.

Speaking about the upcoming film, Bhardwaj told a leading daily, “Talvar was about much more than the heinous crime itself, the film held up a mirror to society and exposed several loopholes in the system. Such crimes shake the very moral fabric of society and need to be analysed in a much deeper sense. The world is not just black and white, there’s more to a crime than just victim and perpetrator. That’s why we have decided to continue making true crime procedurals like Talvar.”

Talvar, which featured Irrfan Khan and Konkana Sen Sharma in the lead roles, was based on the Arushi Talwar murder case and opened to critical reception from fans and critics.

Now, after the announcement of the sequel, the makers have raised the curiosity by revealing the subject of the film.

Presented by Junglee Pictures and directed by Vishal Bhardwaj, Talvar 2 will release sometime in early 2019.
