Found Talvar intriguing: Konkona Sen
The 35-year-old actOR said she could not have let go of the opportunity of playing Nupur, who along with husband Rajesh Talwar, is convicted in the double murder case, as such <g data-gr-id="38">roles</g> do not come her way every day.
“When Meghna offered me the film, I knew immediately I was on for it. I was like ‘Wow’. I found it unusual, different and interesting and one does not get offered interesting things anyway. It is not like one is getting brilliant characters every day,” Konkona told a <g data-gr-id="31">media</g> person.
The film revolves around three investigative theories, which were proposed over the course of the case.
Konkona found it fascinating how her character required three different portrayals, depending upon the three crime scenes, as each theory had a different say on the involvement of the parents in the murder.
“I was quite <g data-gr-id="36">excited,</g> when I was offered the role. I had to look at it as a film project and not really get into the real life aspect of it because it is an unusual kind of a role. The film is an investigative thriller.
“It goes through three different lines of <g data-gr-id="44">investigation</g> there is Noida police, then CBI 1 and CBI 2. There are three crime scenes that are presented. In one scenario, my character is guilty, in the other she could be an unwilling accomplice and in the third she could be innocent and that was very interesting as a performer to play, the same thing done differently at different times.”
The seven-year-old case continues to generate curiosity among people and evoke different <g data-gr-id="41">reactions</g> but Konkona insists she has no opinion on it as she feels no investigation has pointed 100 <g data-gr-id="30">per cent</g> in one direction.
She credited the film’s team and especially Vishal Bhardwaj, who has penned and co-produced the film, for re-assuring about the quality of the movie.
