Is Murder Mubarak a true story?
The answer is no. Produced by Dinesh Vijan, Murder Mubarak is based on a murder-mystery book titled 'Club You to Death' authored by Anuja Chauhan. Since Murder Mubarak is adapted from Club You to Death, Anuja Chauhan's book is a murder mystery set in Delhi posh area and Delhi Turf Club ( DTC ). In that DTC club, they plan to do the Presidential election. On that day of the election, the Zumba class trainer Leo was murdered mysteriously.
The official synopsis of the book says, "When a hunky personal trainer is found asphyxiated to death under an overloaded barbell at the posh Delhi Turf Club, on the eve of the club elections, it is first thought to be a freak accident. But soon, it becomes clear that one of the members of the DTC - all pickled-in-privilege Dilliwallahs - is a cold-blooded killer."
The book is highly rated and a user on social media praising Anuja had wrote, "Its the best kind of murder mystery, by the end of story, you are in love with each and every character or at least you understand their motives and don't want anybody to be the murderer."
