The investigative thriller delving into the mysterious world of child trafficking and missing children is titled Backwaters and ihelmed by FTII graduate Abhinav Thakur.

Delhi theatre actor Sartaazh Khari will essay the role of the CBI officer investigating the case while UK model Neeta Paryani will essay the role of a fact-finding journalist conducting a simultaneous investigation.

“We found Sartaazh to be apt for the role. We are exploring all the angles of how the children went missing and how a sharp CBI officer exploring the case looks at every eventuality but is unable to nail a single one. Journalists have also played an important role in this case and Neeta was pitch perfect for the scribe who does her own research and investigation into the cases of the missing children,” says Thakur.
