The Aamir Khan-starrer Talaash created a lot of buzz with its teaser promo.

But since then, rumours have been rife that director Reema Kagti’s psychological thriller might be ‘inspired’ by multiple films. But the makers haven’t attempted to deny or clarify any such reports.

Here’s why: Aamir’s diktat to his team, right from the start, has been that they should not clarify or comment on this issue. “Even though rumours have been doing the rounds, he has told the team to not say anything. He wants everyone to focus on the promos,” says a source from the production unit.

To start with, conjecture is that Talaash could be a remake of the Tamil thriller Anniyan (2005). Similarities have also been drawn to two Hollywood films — the 2003 American horror-mystery film, Identity, and the Leonardo DiCaprio-starrer thriller, Shutter Island (2010). The latest rumour went as far as to suggest that Talaash’s release was pushed because of plot similarities to Kahaani.

Aamir, as usual, is playing it cool. He is confident about the film, and is certain that the new promo (launched on Wednesday) will put all rumours to rest. The source also adds that, in spite of shooting for Dhoom: 3 in Chicago, Aamir has personally worked on the promo.

“He has been in touch with Reema and the marketing heads. He has kept track of every detail. In all likelihood, Aamir is expected back in India by October-end. Then he will start promoting the film,” adds the source.

Despite repeated attempts, Aamir couldn’t be reached in Chicago, but his spokesperson confirms, “It’s true that no one from the team is allowed to clarify anything.”

Plot points
Anniyan (2005): An honest lawyer develops multiple personality disorder, punishing criminals as a vigilante.
Identity (2003): Ten strangers stuck in a motel realise they are being killed off one after another.
Shutter island (2010): Two US Marshals travel to Shutter Island to investigate a case. But nothing there is as it seems.

In Talaash, a psychological thriller, written and directed by Reema Kagti, Aamir stars as a police officer, Inspector Shekhawat.
The film also stars Kareena Kapoor as sex-worker Rosy and Rani Mukherjee as Aamir Khan's wife. It also sees Nawazuddin Siddiqui in an important role.
The best part about the theatrical trailer is that it gives a sneak peek into Talaash, hinting at what the story is actually all about.
