The buzz is that Manish Gupta's next 'Rahasya' is based on the life of Aarushi Talwar, a Noida teenager, whose murder in May 2008 remains a mystery till date.

Justice VM Kanade, however, on Tuesday, ruled that Rahasya's story does not depict the facts of Aarushi's murder mystery.

The film's release was in stay in the wake of opposition from parents of their slain teenager Aarushi Talwar.

However, director Gupta was seen taking sigh of relief with the Bombay HC order.

Gupta said, "I have spent an entire year fighting this case. I was unable to write or start any other film. The loss to my producer and distributors Viacom 18 has run into crores. But now, as planned, we will release it this Friday."

The Talwars had in February last year blocked the release alleging the film is based on the life of their late daughter. Aarushi's mother Nupur had filed a petition in the High Court against Rahasya producer Monica Vimal Maluka demanding a stay on the film's release and the quashing of its censor certificate.
