`No One Killed Jessica` inspires Vikram Bhatt for new film

New Delhi: Inspired by the Rani Mukherjee-Vidya Balan starrer `No One Killed Jessica`, filmmaker Vikram Bhatt is making a film on the same lines but with a different subject.

The film will have its roots in medical negligence. It is about a boy who dies on the operation table. Titled `Ankur Arora Murder Case`, the film is based on a real life incident.

"`No One Killed Jessica` is a reference point because even in that film it was shown how an innocent girl was killed and then further lack of accountability resulted in justice being denied to the victim`s family.

"`Ankur Arora Murder Case` also bears a similar theme. We are saying that Ankur Arora didn`t die just because doctors failed to save him. Instead, it was plain murder," said Vikram.

This case didn`t find as much social awakening and a widespread public movement, as was the case with `No One Killed Jessica`.

However, Vikram aspires to bring some of the secrets out in open with this medical thriller, said a source.

The film would feature Arjun Mathur in the lead along with K K Menon, Vishakha Singh and Tisca Chopra. Paoli Dam, who was last seen in Vikram`s `Hate Story`, would be seen in an important part as well.

Just like `Hate Story`, Vikram is entrusting another director to call the shots.

Suhail Tatari would be directing `Ankur Tiwari Murder Case`. He begins shooting next month itself," the source added.
