No 'reshoot' for Aamir Khan's TALAASH, confirms Reema

TALAASH, a co-production of Aamir Khan, Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, has been in news ever since it was announced around two years back. With Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji joining the cast, the film became all the more special. Also since TALAASH is releasing almost three years after Aamir's last commercial release (3 IDIOTS), there is widespread curiosity amongst many to catch the film.
''Such things happen,'' she says in a matter of fact tone, ''A film getting delayed is not uncommon. Anything that works towards the betterment of the film and gives good enough space for promotion and marketing is fine. It isn't as if my film was started and then was stalled. In fact it is ready and the first edit is also in place. Now if the film arrives a few months later, it's okay. I am chilled out.''
Reema goes on to add that she had started preparing herself for the film's delay once shoot of Aamir Khan's TV show got postponed.
''It is known to one and all that sets of Aamir's show had caught fire. After that it was inevitable that there would be further time spent before he starts shooting for it. This was bound to have a ripple effect on TALAASH. It is just that the announcement has come in now,'' she reasons.
She is particularly amused with another rumour making the round that the major portions of TALAASH are being re-shot so that (alleged) similarities with KAHAANI are completely wiped out.
''Impossible,'' she laughs, ''Neither is there any shoot remaining nor is there any re-shoot happening. There is just a little patchwork of a couple of shots to be done which would take half a day. Now anyone familiar with little bit of filmmaking would know that patchwork is common for most of the films and could take place even a few days before the release. In half a day of patchwork, you can't change the film's storyline, right?''
