Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda claims his latest thriller ‘Murder 3’ celebrates voyeurism. The film delves into the world of a couple discovering each other and uncovering their deep, dark secrets. Clearly not an advert for celebrating Valentine’s Day, the film also has a case of a missing girlfriend thrown into the murky mix.

As ‘Murder 3’, from the Bhatt camp rolls into the theatres on Thursday, tabloid! dishes out 10 things you should know about the third film in the franchise starring Hooda, Aditi Rao Hydari of ‘London, Paris, New York’ fame and Pakistani actress Sara Loren.

•“Murder 3 will make you question whether monogamy really exists in today’s modern-day relationships. It makes you question whether an eye contact by a man with another woman hides a spark or does it trigger a desire to stray.” Randeep Hooda

•’Murder 3’ is directed by Mukesh Bhatt’s son Vishesh and is the third film to emerge from the series of films that go by the same title. Unrelated in plot, the films have common threads like infidelity and deceit.

•While the first two installments featured Mukesh Bhatt’s nephew Emraan Hashmi in important roles, it’s the first time that the Bhatt family has offered the lead role in the Murder series to an actor outside their clan.

•“It’s a twisted love story and it’s a story told from a girl’s perspective.” Aditi Rao Hydari

•“Murder 3 will compel you to ask yourself how well you know your partner and whether you will really know your partner entirely.” Randeep Hooda

•“Murder 3 is bold in its theme but traditional in its message.” Randeep Hooda

•“It’s an official re-make of the Spanish film ‘Hidden Face’. We have purchased the rights and I have seen the film to get a clearer idea about my role.” Randeep Hooda

•“I play a wildlife photographer. It’s tough to be sandwiched and wooed by two hot women. I’m just kidding. I knew how to hold a camera and that helped. I am what you call an ace iphone-photographer in real life.” Randeep Hooda

•“The Murder franchise has re-invented itself with Murder 3. Earlier, you could make films with high erotic content, but everything now is available on the internet. The best part about the Bhatts is that they don’t keep churning out the same kind of films.” Rao Hydari

•“My character may be young and vulnerable. But this movie tells all girls out there to stand up for what is important to them. All along, we have been told to tolerate what love throws at you. But this movie will make you re-consider that. You have an empowered woman here.” Rao Hydari
