Mumbai, June 30 (IANS) 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.
