People are awaiting the release of Aamir Khan’s upcoming movie ‘Talaash’ with bated breath.  

Aamir Khan, who has delivered ‘n’ number of hits in his career, said that he still feels pressure to deliver the best movie but tried not to let the pressure get to him.

“There will always be pressure which is good as people expect more from me. But it is scary too. I try that this pressure does not come my way,” said Aamir Khan to PTI.

In ‘Talaash’ Aamir Khan plays the role of a cop, which seems to the current trend in Bollywood with the likes of Salman Khan, Ajay Devgn and Akshay Kumar donning Khaki in ‘Dabangg’, ‘Singham’ and ‘Rowdy Rathore’ respectively.

“I don't think I am competing with anyone of them. Though Salman, Ajay and Akshay have played the roles of a cop but my role is different. It is not an out-an-out entertaining film in that way but I liked it and agreed to be part of it,” said Aamir.

“I did not have to prepare for my role in this film much. I did that when I played a cop in Sarfarosh. I feel no role is easy,” he said.

Along with Aamir Khan, the movie also stars Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji. While Kareena plays the role of a sex worker, Rani plays Aamir's wife.

Aamir said that Kareena and Rani were perfect for their roles and he cannot choose who is better.

Aamir Khan is also all praises for his director Reema Kagti.

“I have worked with lady directors in the past including my wife, Deepa Nair and now Reema... it is always great to work with them. It is irrelevant whether the director is male or female. She is perceptive of performances; I was guided a lot by her. I saw her demanding as well as open, I could trust her instincts,” he said.

Reema too can’t seem to stop praising Aamir.

“Aamir has given creative inputs. I appreciate that. He was quite respectful of my vision. He tried to bring his best. And with Kareena and Rani also in, it was a dream cast,” said Reema Kagti.

It was earlier reported that Shah Rukh Khan was approached to play the role of Aamir Khan in the movie. When asked about it Reema said, “I would not like to talk about things that did not work out. This happens in films. I am happy with main and secondary cast of.”

When asked the same question to Aamir he said, “I was not aware who was offered the film.”

The movie is all set to release on November 30.
