Reema Kagti clears the air about Aamir Khan-starrer Talaash being inspired by an American novella. There have been speculations that the film, which also features Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji, might be a copy of Act of Providence by Joseph Payne Brennan and Donald M Grant, reported Mid-Day.
"I have no knowledge of the book nor is my film anyway inspired by it. I guess these theories started floating because the working title of my film was Act of Providence for two years before we switched to Talaash," Kagti told the tabloid.
The director also clarified that Talaash is a suspense-drama and not a thriller. "It's a suspense-drama. When you have this sort of storyline, the mystery adds to the anticipation and people tend to call it a thriller but in my film, the layers keep changing thus adding to the overall drama," the tabloid quoted her as saying.
