MUMBAI: The mysterious and tragic death of Sheena Bora is taking new turns each day. Several names have been included in the list of those who are being interrogated, however, prime accused of the case, including Indrani Mukerjea, the wife of former Star India CEO Peter Mukerjea and also Sheena’s mother, her former husband Sanjeev Khanna and driver Shyam Rai are in the police custody.
We have often seen Bollywood directors taking up the high-profile cases as their key concept of the movies. Some of them have been great hits like The Attacks of 26/11 by Ram Gopal Verma that focused on the well-known 26/11 terror attacks that killed over 250 people, Jolly LLB by Subhash Kapoor focuses back on the famous Sanjeev Nanda BMW hit-and-run case, Manjunath that raised the murder of former IIM student Manjunath in Karnataka and Gangster that revolved around the life of Abu Salem.
The list is too long to be mentioned here. The latest to hit the screen is ‘Talvar’ by Meghna Gulzar that is based on Aarushi Talwar murder case and is scheduled to release on October 2. However, the ongoing controversy around Sheena Bora’s death is also certain to hit the creative minds of the tinsel town and we are sure, soon there will be announcement that a movie on Sheena Bora murder case is coming up by ‘so and so’ Director.
Let’s take a look five big names who are expected or rather are capable of making a movie on one of the most sensational scandals of 2015!
We all know that Mahesh Bhatt’s name is the first to hit our brains when we talk about thriller cinema. With several movies on extra marital affairs, infidelity, crime, Director, Producer and Screenwriter Mahesh Bhatt has certainly set a bar which nobody else can touch upon. Well, what else could you ask for when the ‘Humari Adhuri Kahani’ Director himself confessed about the fact that he wrote a story similar to Indrani-Sheena scandal in May itself? However, he claimed that it is a fictional movie and has nothing to do with the ongoing controversy or any other real-life event.
Vishal Bhardwaj has given some blockbusters that even today remain unparallel. His movies like Omkara, Ishqiya, Nishabdh, Haider have certainly won our hearts. The Director is now set with his new venture ‘Talvar’ another real-life event based movie as the Writer and Music Director. It would be no surprise to see him announcing a movie on Indrani-Sheena murder mystery anytime soon.
Okay, now… We know that this would be too much but don’t be surprised if the self-obsessed director and actor Kamaal Rashid Khan announces that he would like to make a movie on the entire episode. Have you ever heard of a comedy thriller movie? It seems that that would how it would be if KRK plans to do a movie on this story.
In most of his films, Bhandarkar's protagonist is female. We have seen how Tabu in Chandni Bar, Konkona Sena in Page 3, Kangana Ranaut and Priyanka Chopra in Fashion, Kareena Kapoor in Heroine have given excellent performances in these movies. Known for his realistic movies, Madhur Bhandarkar is famous for his hard-hitting stories. So, if Sheena Bora – Indrani Mukerjea story needs a proper direction, it certainly needs a Director like Madhur Bhandarkar.
Ram Gopal Verma
Ram Gopal Varma is another Director we believe who is capable of making a movie on the ongoing controversy of Sheena Bora murder. His movies like Satya, Company, Sarkar, The Attacks of 26/11 and Sakar Raj had definitely left the audience and people don’t mind watching them even today.
Well, the movie with all possible factors- infidelity, multiple marriages, ignorant husbands, step children, disapproved love affairs will make a stellar combination. Don’t you agree? So let’s just wait and watch which director announces the movie on the topic that is sure to touch the Rs. 100 crore blockbuster mark.
