MUMBAI: Filming for the feature film adaptation of Japanese bestseller ‘The Devotion of Suspect X’, directed by Sujoy Ghosh, has been completed. The Netflix film is a still titled murder mystery and stars Kareena Kapoor Khan, Jaideep Ahlawat and Vijay Varma.

Kareena took to her Instagram page to announce the ending on Saturday night.

“DSX! Best crew, best ride, best times…and I’m sure best movie too. Get ready @netflix_in…this one is… @jayshewakramani @akshaipuri @itsvijayvarma @jaideepahlawat #SujoyGhosh,” she wrote alongside the footage with the film’s crew. Netflix officially announced the film, based on Keigo Higashino’s 2005 novel, in March.
