Star World Originals presents crime documentary series The Talwars - Behind Closed Doors

The double murder of Aarushi Talwar and Hemraj – parents acquitted, no new evidence, no new suspects – leaves many questions still unanswered.

The Talwars - Behind Closed Doors is Star World’s first venture into investigative crime documentaries bringing its audience a  series on the double homicide of 13-year old Aarushi Talwar and the Talwar's domestic help, Hemraj. This four-part original series chronicles one of the most controversial trials of the century that baffled the nation as well as the police, the CBI and the Indian judiciary that will air on Star World and Hotstar beginning November 26.  

The series has been produced in association with HBO Asia and created by team that comprises executive producer Sarah MacDonald, an acclaimed journalist and BAFTA winning documentary filmmaker. She has produced and directed documentaries for BBC and CNN. Her work includes groundbreaking investigations into child abuse and the Catholic Church and extraordinary rendition by the CIA, North Korea escapees. Also associated with the project is Miikka Leskinen, the Chief Editor, an award winning film editor credited with a vast body of work across film, documentary and television, garnering nearly a hundred awards including a Primetime Emmy along with Oscar and BAFTA nominations.

"At Star, it has always been our endeavour to present differentiated content that strikes a chord with our audience. We’re proud to present yet another Star World Originals production, this time in partnership with HBO Asia. The Talwars - Behind Closed Doors focuses on the destruction that one night of violence in May 2008 wreaked in the Talwar household. The series echoes the sentiment of the country on whether the pieces of the puzzle will ever fall together,” says a Star India spokesperson.

Star World Originals, The Talwars - Behind Closed Doors will premiere on Sunday November 26 and continue on the 3 subsequent Sundays at 10 PM only on Star World & Hotstar
