Advance booking started for Aamir Khan’s 'Talaash'

The makers of ‘Talaash’ are hopeful that it will turn out to be a blockbuster hit. Hence the advance ticket booking for it has started more than 100 days prior to the release. This also confirms that the release date won’t be pushed any further back. The film which stars Amir Khan, Rani Mukherjee and Kareena Kapoor, was slated to be released in December 2011. However, due to Amir’s television debut with ‘Satyamev Jayate’, its release date has been moved around a lot.

In January 2012, a teaser trailer of it was released in the theaters. He gathered good response from the public. The date for its release was said to be on June 1st, 2012. It did not take place. Producer Ritesh Sidwani said the next release date would be November 30. With the advance booking starting now, it seems to be so. It also been said that the story had some resemblance Sujoy Ghosh’s ‘Kahanni’. One of the reasons it was delayed.

As a source close to the movie said, “Never before has this happened for any Bollywood film but perhaps this is Aamir's way of making an announcement quite loud and clear. At many multiplexes across major centers in the country, the film's advance booking has already opened for November 30. While patrons were in for a surprise when they realized that they could book tickets for ‘Talaash’ well in advance, it is also a way for producers Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidwani to gauge audience curiosity much in advance.”

‘Talaash’ is one of the most anticipated movies of 2012, much more than Hrithik Roshan’s ‘Agneepath’ and Salman Khan’s ‘Ek Tha Tiger’. Though Amir had acted in his wife Kiran Rao’s film ‘Dhobighat’, this movie would see him in a full-fledged role after ‘3 idiots’. He plays the role of a police officer in the movie. Amir has also co-produced the movie along with Ritesh and Farhan Akhtar. Known to keep the secrecy around his movies, nothing about the story has been divulged.

The script has been co-written by Reema Katgi and Zoya Akhtar. Reema is also the director of the movie. Her earlier movie ‘Honeymoon travels pvt. Ltd. has had a limited success at the box office. The shooting for the movie began in March 2011 and was completed by August. It’s shooting took place at Mumbai and Pondicherry.

Aamir’s fans are really happy with the advance booking. Hope it is on par with their expectations.
