Aamir Khan wants to add song to ‘Talaash’
This is the Delhi Belly producer’s latest suggestion to spice up his forthcoming thriller co-starring Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji
We already told you that Aamir Khan has told the team of Talaash that he will closely monitor the editing of the film now that the film’s release date has been pushed from June to November. Our source who wines and dines with the people at Excel Entertainment, the thriller’s producers, told us that the ace actor has come up with an innovative promotional idea – to add a song. However, it won’t be a traditional item song where a scantily clad woman will do latkas and jhatkas on saucy, rhythmic beats, but a melody that will sensibly become a part of the screenplay and take the story forward. But we don’t know which actor of the three main leads - Aamir, Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji – will be a part of it.
By the way, the latest marketing mantra – to get actors to dance on chartbusting song in their own films – is being adopted by other filmmakers too. Hrithik Roshan will be doing one such song for Krrish 3, Salman Khan will shoot something like an item song for Dabangg 2 and Kareena Kapoor will swirl and twirl in a specially-choreographed song for Heroine. We have just one question for Mr Perfectionist: how will a song help a thriller? Let’s hope Aamir knows it best on this one too!
