One of the most nerve wrecking cases of India during the 90's was the murder case of a real estate developer, Shakereh Khaleeli of Bengaluru. This time the OTT platform, Amazon Prime Video has taken over the mysterious subject and created a spine binding real life documentary series in four parts written and directed by Patrick Graham.
The trailer of the series, 'Dancing on the Grave' was released on Tuesday, 18 April 2023. The two and a half minute long goosebump worthy trailer caught merging attention from all the viewers. According to the creators, the whole ensemble was created by picking up old clippings, interviews and dramatization of the mysterious case where a Royal blood, named Shakereh of Mysuru, Karnataka went missing.

The research process took a bunch of 22,000 pages on the case to be read and more than 57 people across the nation were interviewed including the key personnel's and people living near her Mysore peripheries, to not miss even a slightest clue while unraveling Shakereh's case. The narrative hence goes beyond the proves and digs much deeper into the known facts of the mystery murder case that shook away the nation almost 30 years ago.
