Arre and Saavn launch 'Aarushi Files'

New Delhi [India], Oct. 11 (ANI): Arre and Saavn launch 'Aarushi Files', the eight-part non-fiction audio series depicts the infamous Noida double murders and the subsequent trial in a serialized, investigative format.

'Aarushi Files' is hosted by eminent journalist Richa Anirudh.

In the show, she takes the listeners through an in-depth investigative journey into the Noida double murder case and the controversial trial that followed.

The audio series comes alive through interviews with, and first-person accounts of, key witnesses, friends of Aarushi, the Talwar family and the author Avirook Sen.

With forensic detail, the show pieces together the murky aspects of the case that question whether justice was truly served with the verdict that eventually convicted Aarushi's parents.

A lot of the research that went into making the audio series has been curated for listeners on Arre in the form of maps, charts, timelines, commentary on official reports and relevant press coverage.

This will allow listeners to engage deeply with the series and help them form objective opinions about the case.

The first episode of this investigative true-crime series premiered on September 18 on both Arre and Saavn.

Each subsequent episode will premiere every Sunday at 12am and remain available to Arre and Saavn's listeners thereafter.

Ajay Chacko, Arre Co-Founder and CEO said, "We're overwhelmed with the response that we drew with Trial by Error | The Aarushi Files and we hope to reach out to a much larger audience base through the Hindi

version. This is a story that must be told."

Adding, "A lot of original research, primary interviews, and detailing has gone into the creation of this audio series and we hope that the experience is an immersive one for the listeners of Arre and Saavn".

Gaurav Wadhwa VP of Entertainment and Original Content at Saavn said, "The value of something being told is in it being heard. Our show Trial By Error | The Aarushi Files was an attempt to leverage the power of audio and Saavn's reach to fulfill our society's need to know. Now, with the Hindi version, we will further increase the reach and awareness of this story."

"As we continue to grow our catalogue, by introducing new genres, we are also committed to introducing content in various languages and this marks Saavn's foray into exploring multiple languages for the

same content," he added. (ANI)
