Taher Shabbir, who got critical acclaim for his roles in ‘Naam Shabana’ (2017) and ‘Guilty’ (2020) features on the poster as Pratyush Parashar. The film revolves around a woman who is racing against time to solve her own murder. Intricately woven, it has an ensemble of characters intertwined in their own struggles. It is expected to go on floors this year and release early next year. The film’s tagline, “Can You Solve Your Own Murder” forms a never-heard-before premise in the film. This sleek whodunit thriller is written and directed by Vishal Mishra. Veteran music director Rajesh Roshan would be composing music for the film.

Taher Shabbir says, “Being part of a mystery thriller has always been one of my dreams. I’m so glad that this early in my career, I get to play such an interesting character in a concept-driven, unique thriller. For this, I’m grateful to Mandiraa Entertainment, Vivek Anand Oberoi, Prerna V Arora, Oberoi Mega Entertainment and Vishal Mishraji. Being a part of this talented team makes this opportunity all the more special and I’m sure this movie is going to be a game changer!”

Talking about the casting of Taher, director Vishal Mishra says, “Taher Shabbir was our first choice for this role. I’ve seen his work in Fan, Manikarnika, Naam Shabana and Guilty and have always took notice of his performance. He’s a perfect fit to play Pratyush Parashar, the character that’s got many layers.”
