Mumbai: Filmmaker Ram Gopal Verma`s next "Not A Love Story" is inspired by the true story of the heinous murder of TV executive Neeraj Grover, but the director claims that it`s not a biopic of Kannada actress Maria Susairaj, who has been convicted in the case.
"The film is not a biopic. It has been inspired by the incident but not based on that particular incident. The characters are imaginative and I wanted to show the state-of-mind or the emotion that might have driven them to do such a crime," Verma told reporters at the first look of the film here at Cinemax Versova.
Grover was stabbed to death by former Navy officer and Susairaj`s boyfriend Emile Jerome in her flat. The actress was Thursday convicted of destroying evidence.
The tagline of the film -- "In the summer of 2008, two lovers killed a man, had sex in front of the body, cut it into pieces, packed it in a shopping bag and disposed it" -- is a relevant pointer to the original case.
The gory trailer of the film shows how Mahie Gill and her fiance Deepak Dhobrial murder Ajay Gehi and burn his body pieces in a jungle.
"This is a story of two very ordinary people. The girl in the film is a very simple girl, the ones I meet regularly in course of my career. One fine morning, how these simple people can go completely bizarre and do such a terrible thing, which a normal person cannot imagine," said Verma.
