Viacom18 Motion Pictures’ Rahasya to release on 30 January 2015

MUMBAI: Inspired by the double Noida murder case, Viacom18 Motion Pictures is all set to present a riveting thriller named Rahasya, scheduled to release on 30 January 2015. Produced by Monica Vimal Maluka, the movie is a join presentation by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and UVI Film Productions.


The film’s story is centered on an urban doctor couple living in Mumbai whose only child, an 18 year old teenager called Ayesha Mahajan has been murdered inside their large duplex apartment.


The initial investigations point at the girl’s father as the prime accused for the murder. But as the case is taken over by the Central Bureau of Investigation (C.B.I.), the film questions whether a father could kill his own daughter and if not, then who killed Ayesha Mahajan?


The thriller reveals ulterior motives of near and dear ones in Ayesha’s life who could have committed this heinous crime. Directed by Manish Gupta, the acclaimed writer of Sarkar, the film features Kay Kay Menon, Tisca Chopra, Ashish Vidyarthi, Mita Vashisht and Ashwini Kalsekar in key roles.


Talking about the film, Viacom18 Motion Pictures COO Ajit Andhare said, “VMP is committed to bringing out scripts that make for engaging narratives. We have made unconventional thrillers into major commercial successes with films like Kahaani & Madras Café. We are looking to accomplish the same through Rahasya that brings together a terrific set of actors in an intriguing plot.”


Elaborating further, he said, “I love suspense as a genre and all my prior work has also had some element of intrigue. Rahasya is a nail-biting thriller of an eccentric officer on the hunt for a killer. We believe the movie will have audiences at the edge of their seats.”
