Soap queen Ekta Kapoor seems to be cashing in on the sensational case of the 15-year-old Aarushi Talwar, which has raked up a lot of public interest. The new track will go on air from next week. Ekta Kapoor’s primetime show, Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki, has a twist to the plot. The new track will be about the murder of Sakshi Tanwar aka Parvati’s 16-year-old granddaughter Tanu, which bears a striking resemblance to the recent Aarushi-murder case.Our source informed us, “The track is currently being shot and even the actors on the sets are commenting about its similarity to the Aarushi-murder case. The track will show the death of Parvati’s 16-year-old granddaughter Tanu played by Akshita.”
In the serial, the body of Tanu’s boyfriend is found inside the house just as the body of the servant was found on the terrace, in Aarushi’s case. The similarities do not end here. In the show as in reality, Tanu’s ashes will be immersed in Haridwar just like Aarushi’s.
Also, the drama will focus on a family member’s involvement in the murder. Like Aarushi’s mother, Parvati will be shown giving interviews to the media. The show has also incorporated the element of the MMS from Aarushi’s case and the CBI probe into the case.
Though Ekta Kapoor remained unavailable for comment, Nivedita Basu, creative head of P, confirmed the development of the new track without giving out the details. Said Nivedita, “We are working on a new track with Ekta and it will be out in a day or so.”
When asked whether the track was inspired by the Aarushi-murder case, she said, “I don’t know anything of that.”
