Pritish Nandy's production house parts with the 'Talvar' title for Meghna Gulzar's whodunit, which was earlier titled 'Nyodda', based on Aarushi Talwar murder case
After giving up the rights to the title Dishkiyaoon for Shilpa Shetty's maiden production venture last year, Pritish Nandy's production house has now shown benevolence to Meghna Gulzar. Her upcoming film inspired from the Aarushi Talwar murder case which was earlier titled 'Nyodda' will now be called 'Talvar'.

The title was initially registered with Pritish Nandy Communications (PNC). A source close to the makers says, "The rights were with PNC, but when Vishal Bhardwaj started writing the film, he had the 'Talvar' name in mind. So the producers decided to go with Nyodda as the working title."
Irrfan stars in 'Talvar'
Rangita Nandy of PNC says, "Meghna was initially making the film with us, but we had to bow out. Meghna found another producer (Junglee Pictures) and Vishal came on board, but we continued to support her and gave her the title." The film stars Irrfan, Tabu, Konkana Sen Sharma, Neeraj Kabi and Soham Shah.
