Allahabad High Court dismissed Central Bureau of Investigations court’s order that sentenced Rajesh Talwar and Nupur Talwar for the double murder of their daughter Aarushi and house-help Hemraj. The case that has captured the imagination of the entire nation for more almost a decade had also inspired a Bollywood film – ‘Talvar’, directed by Meghna Gulzar, presented by Junglee Pictures and produced by Vineet Jain and Vishal Bhardwaj. Interestingly, the Allahabad HC verdict is in sync with the film as it depicted how a closure report was rejected by the investigative agency and the parents were also imprisoned.
The verdict elicited reactions from B-town celebrities also expressed their reactions on the same. Filmmakers Shekhar Kapur, Vishal Bhardwaj, Pritish Nandy and actors Kabir Bedi and Aditi Rao Hydari took to the micro-blogging platform to post their reactions on the verdict.
