Does Aamir Khan’s Talaash borrow from Aarushi murder case?
Real-life crime cases have always inspired filmmakers and it seems Aamir Khan is bitten by the same bug too. The story of his upcoming film Talaash revolves around a murder and reportedly it bears resemblance to the much-publicised Aarushi murder case.
Director Reema Kagti and producer Aamir Khan, who also plays the lead in the film, have reportedly studied the way police in Delhi’s suburb Noida handled the Aarushi murder case and then how CBI went on to re-investigate it.
If sources are to be believed, the makers of the film had asked for newspaper reports on the challenging case, which continues to puzzle them.
They reportedly wanted to know why was Aarushi’s case transferred to the CBI and what were the shortfalls in the police investigations.
However, when contacted, the film’s spokesperson refused to comment on it.
The film, co-produced by Farhan Akhtar and Aamir, also features Rani Mukerji and Kareena Kapoor. It releases November 30.
