New Delhi: The Bhatt camp's head honcho Mahesh Bhatt has revealed something which will leave you in shock. He admits to writing a story just like the Sheena Bora murder case in May this year.
Though Sheena Bora was murdered on 24 April 2012 and the body was found by the Raigad police on May 23, the case caught media fire only a few days ago. It all started when former Star India CEO Peter Mukerjea's wife, Indrani Mukerjea, was arrested for murdering Sheena, her sister.
People reacted with disbelief when the police revealed that Sheena was actually Indrani's daughter and not sister, something which even Peter claimed he was unaware of. This case is taking new twists and turns with every passing day.
With so many theories about this case, it could just be the perfect plot for a Bollywood movie. But who would jot this story down?
Well, Mahesh Bhatt already did it!
Mahesh Bhatt was stunned when he studied the striking similarities between the story he wrote for his protégé Guroudev Bhalla and the Sheena murder mystery case.
"I empathise with the living hell Peter is going through and this is not a pathetic attempt to ride on his unspeakable tragedy. But bizarre as it may sound, the fact is that this is a case of life imitating fiction rather than fiction imitating life," he told a leading daily.
Bhatt's story is titled, ‘Raat Guzarnewali Hai' which was completed in May and will be produced by Dhaval Jayantilal Gada. Though Mahesh Bhatt did not reveal much, he noted that it is a story of crime and passion, drenched in blood, revolving around a mother and daughter.
"The story grew out of my imagination. I never imagined that it could be unfolding for real in a high-rise in our backyard where the rich and powerful reside. The coincidence between a pure work of fiction and real life staggers me, it makes me shudder," he added.
When asked if he would add some more twists to the written story, taking a cue from the real incidents, he refused. "No, my work is done," said Bhatt. "I only wrote this story for my protégé. The film should roll in December. I never imagined that it would explode for real as the mother of all crime stories."
