Ramu Starts Shooting the Film Based on the Infamous Malad Murder Case

Trust the maverick Ram Gopal Varma to churn out issue based films consistently. This time, he is making a movie based on the very real and sensational story of the murder of Neeraj Grover, that happened two years ago, around the same time the movie is being shot.

Titled “Love Story”, Ramu is shooting the film in the same building where the murder took place, Dheeraj Solitaire in Malad’s Linking Road, Mumbai. Ramu will be canning the first shot with Mahie Gill who plays the role of Maria Susairaj. The shooting is an apartment similar to the one that was the scene of the crime, the only difference being this one is being shot 10 floors above

“It is a coincidence that I shot my first scene on April 20, which happens to be the day the actress moved into the flat, and my schedule will get completed on May 6, the day of the murder,” Ramu says. He did not have much trouble getting the society’s permission because both the case and his penchant for authenticity are known. “It is public knowledge. I convinced the society there was no intention to damage anyone’s image. Also we would not disturb their way of life. We don’t have vanity vans or extra people on the sets that hinder peace in the building,” he said.

To ensure the unit is not flabby, he is using a 5D camera, which requires only one person. A unit member said, “It is like a still camera that needs one person. Only natural light is enough. We don’t need any extra lights to frame the scene. When the shoot is over the chip can be inserted into a computer and the film edited.’

Ram Gopal Varma, like many people, have been fascinated by this morbid murder case, in which Maria’s boyfriend had allegedly killed Neeraj Grover who had spent the night with Maria. The two had then cut the body into 300 pieces, allegedly, before disposing it in a forest a few kilometers away. Ramu says, “Three people who did not have a criminal record woke up one morning and became part of something that made the entire world shudder. My focus is on their frame of mind when the crime was committed.”

The director has not spoken to any of the family members of those involved in the murder or the victim. He said, “I didn’t want the story to be coloured by their version and prefer to look at it objectively, from the outside.” In Varma’s A Love Story, Ajay Gehi is Neeraj Grover and Deepak Dobriyal has been cast as Emile Jerome.
