If you are an Emraan Hashmi fan then this will be great news for you as the actor is returning to Murder franchise.

Mahesh Bhatt had confessed last year, soon after the Sheena Bora murder case broke, that he was shocked by the similarities in his script, then titled ‘Ab Raat Guzarnewali Hai,’ and the headline-grabbing events.”The coincidence between a pure work of fiction and real life staggers me, it makes me shudder,” he had admitted.

However, Vikram Bhatt, who will be directing the four installment of this hit franchise, is quick to clarify that ‘Murder 4’ is not inspired by Indrani Mukerjea’s gruesome crime. “It’s just similar in its sensibilities. One wants to explore the depravity of the human mind the way it was done in ‘Murder 2,’ to an extent,” asserts the director, who is currently filming the fourth ‘Raaz’.

Mahesh Bhatt reiterated this, adding that Emraan Hashmi, who featured in ‘Murder’ and ‘Murder 2,’ will be back in this release for which scripting is underway. “It’s too early to reveal details of his character but it’s a strong role and will reinvent his image, along with the Azhar biopic. I’m just waiting for Vikram to complete ‘Raaz Reboot’ and then we will plan this one. It’s been a lucrative franchise for us and we have to make ‘Murder 4’ bigger and better,” he revealed.
