For the past couple of years, it’s almost become a practice to send spoilers before the release of any big film. With Aamir Khan-starrer Talaash about to hit theatres later this week, the same predicament has befallen the film.
A text message has been doing the rounds since last week, leaking the plot of the film. Reportedly, the sms reads somewhat like this: “A year ago, he had murdered his wife in a rage, drowned her, almost died in an accident himself and then lost his memory. Aamir Khan is back searching for the killer, who, in fact, is none other than himself in the film Talaash”.
The film’s makers are angry. And unlike others who’ve let such leaks, whether correct or incorrect, spoil the audience’ interest and impact the business done by their films, the makers of Talaash are planning to take legal action against the person sending such messages. An insider revealed, “They are quite miffed and want to take legal action and put an end to such wrong practices.” The Talaash spokesperson said, “Talaash is the most anticipated film of the season. And to reveal the suspense is playing spoil sport.” Another source said, “ The makers have already initiated action.”
