The actor, who had creative differences with director Reema Kagti, ensured that his vision shaped the new promos.
The latest promo of Aamir Khan's cop thriller "Talaash" looks so different from the first that it could have been mistaken for an altogether new film, had it not been for the title and the credit roll. And interestingly, the new trailer has Aamir written all over it. Needless to say, the feisty director, Reema Kagti, who had serious differences with her lead actor over the final look of the project, and had even staged a walkout from a meeting held at Aamir's residence, eventually had to concede territory to Mr Perfectionist. If sources are to be believed, Aamir, before leaving for the Chicago schedule of"Dhoom 3", sat for the edit of the trailer and saw to it that his vision of for "Talaash" was retained
When quizzed about it, Reema admitted that Aamir had indeed taken a lot of interest in the promo but also diplomatically added, "but so has everybody else."
She explained that since the last promo did not bring out the suspense element of the film, a new one had to be made. However, a source close to the project maintained that it was Aamir, who insisted that he oversee the edit of the promo.
Aamir and Reema had a lot of creative differences earlier. Farhan Akhtar (the producer) tried to play peacemaker. And in fact, Reema even told the media that her actor was happy with the film.
Needless to say, Aamir, whose determination to control every aspect of his films, has led to several clashes in the past with Amol Gupte, Anusha Rizvi and even Ram Gopal Varma, did not bow down to Reema this time around. According to the source, the actor has made sure that the audience gets to see what he wants them to.
