Audiences may differ in their opinion on the way Aamir Khan’s Talaash has shaped up, but most of those who watched the film since its November 30 release have liked the way the film started — with a tribute to Pallavi Purkayastha, the 25-year-old who was part of the legal team of Farhan Akhtar’s Excel Entertainment, the producers of the film.
Pallavi was brutally murdered by the watchman of her building in Mumbai in August this year. As a tribute, a large photo of Pallavi is shown in the opening credits, with text that reads, ‘You live in our memories’.
The film’s director Reema Kagti says, “Pallavi handled the contracts of the entire cast and crew. There were tons of permissions required because we have used some existing soundtracks. She was a very positive, capable and hard working girl. This was our way of honouring her.”
