'Talaash' is not similar to 'Kahaani': Reema Kagti

Added by harini on Mar 23, 2012

Aamir Khan’s ‘Talaash’ that was to be released in June will now release at the end of November. The reason for this delay is rumored to be that Aamir Khan isn’t happy with the climax of the movie and is planning on reshooting it. It also said that the reason Aamir wants to reshoot is because the movie ‘Talaash’s’ story is similar to that of Vidya Balan’s ‘Kahaani’.

But the director of the movie Reema Kagti denies the rumors.

“I am rather surprised about these rumors. We have moved the release of the film to November because we didn't want it to clash with Aamir's TV show but some chose to build their own stories. I have heard a lot about ‘Kahaani’. Sujoy Ghosh is a good friend and I am sure it would be fantastic. But there is nothing that is similar about the two films,” she said.

“Let ‘Talaash’ release and the film will speak for itself. People will realize on their own that there is no similarity whatsoever,” she added.

The movie starring Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji has been in news ever since its inception two years ago. The movie that was to release last December itself will be releasing one year later than planned.

But the director isn’t fazed by this change.

“Such things happen. A film getting delayed is not uncommon. The film is ready and the first edit is also in place. I am not bothered that the film will arrive a few months later. I am chilled out,” she said.

She confirmed that Aamir Khan’s TV show was the reason for the delay.

“The sets of Aamir's TV show had caught fire. After that it was inevitable that there would be delay and it was bound to have a ripple effect on ‘Talaash’. It is just that the announcement has come now,” she said.

“There is just a little patchwork of a couple of shots to be done which would take half a day. Anyone familiar with little bit of filmmaking would know that it is common for most of the films but you can't change the film's storyline in such a short time,” she added denying that they were reshooting movie to change storyline.

Infact Reema Kagti is happy that there will now be more time for promotions.

“Aamir will see the first edit soon. There are other ideas that are being firmed up for the film's marketing and promotion. There is still some time before they are unveiled,” she concluded.
