Why No One Killed Jessica has Fake Names

In No One Killed Jessica, you will see that apart from Jessica and Sabrina Lal, every other person in the film has a different name, not the real names of people who were actually involved in the case. This is because many production houses including UTV(producers of NOKJ) have decided to play safe and not be involved in legal hassles.

According to sources, the script actually had the characters with their real names. Raj Kumar Gupta even wanted to offer, Shayan Munshi, the prime witness in the murder case, the chance to play himself. However, since there were legal issues involved, it was better to steer off the trouble. So now in the film, you will have many influential people in the case, including the prime accused Manu Sharma and other key witnesses with different names with some fake characters added (including that of Rani Mukherji)

Director Rajkumar Gupta says. “You will have to see the film to see why we have done what we have with the characters. Beyond that I don’t want to comment on the names of the characters.” Siddharth Roy Kapoor of UTV is more up-front about the changes done to conceal the identity of the real people in No One Killed Jessica. Says Siddharth, “The film is Raj Kumar Gupta’s creative interpretation of Sabrina’s journey, her trials, tribulations and finally vindication after Jessica’s demise. So we felt Jessica’s was the only character that needed to be specifically identifiable.”

A source adds. “The film decided to backtrack on real names when eyewitnesses and other people associated with the Jessica Lal case began to make urgent and anxious inquiries about the film. The characters are still easily identifiable. Only their names have been disguised. In our country, any film based on real incidents immediately invites legal and financial trouble. The makers of No One Killed Jessica didn’t want to be stuck in dozens of legal snags and moral debates. That’s why all the names have been changed.”
