Aamir`s TV show delays `Talaash` release

Mumbai: The release of Aamir Khan-starrer ‘Talaash’, scheduled for June 1, has been pushed to November-end or in the actor`s lucky month December, co-producer Ritesh Sidhwani says. Aamir`s involvement with his TV show is the reason for the delay.

"We have postponed the release of `Talaash`. It will release either in November-end or the first week of December," Sidhwani said.

Perhaps a December release could do well for the project, given Aamir`s history with the month. For three consecutive years, starting 2007, he gave back-to-back hits – ‘Taare Zameen Par’, ‘Ghajini’ and ‘3 Idiots’ -- which were released in December.

Citing the reason behind the delay in the film`s release, Sidhwani said: "Aamir`s TV show (for Star Plus) is going to be on air till June. That is eating into the promotion of `Talaash`. And since it`s Aamir`s next big film after `3 Idiots`, he needs to be around for its promotion."

Directed by Reema Kagti, ‘Talaash’ also features Rani Mukerji and Kareena Kapoor. It is co-produced by Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar of Excel Entertainment, as well as Aamir Khan Productions.
