Circa 2004, Murder broke new grounds in Hindi cinema by introducing the 'eroticism' flavor. The stars of the film, Emraan Hashmi and Mallika Sherawat became epitomes for sensuality and passion. Last year, Murder 2 made the franchise a tad bloodier and gorier, more evil and upped the sensual quotient with the presence of the electrifying Jacqueline Fernandez.
For the next movie in this franchise, producer Mahesh Bhatt has planned to up the ante and has signed on Actor Randeep Hooda for a significant role.
"Yes, we've signed Randeep Hooda. We loved his work in Jannat 2. He is also with us in Jism 2. He is only going to grow from strength to strength from here on. We now have him in a film that is called Murder 3."
Emraan Hashmi, who has played the leading roles in both the Murder films yet, might not be a part of this film. Hence, Hooda has been asked to take on the mantle. The leading lady has not yet been finalized and is slated to go on floors by the end of the year.
