Aamir Khan, who is currently promoting his suspense drama Talaash, confessed that he experienced a feeling of deja vu and was even spooked a wee bit, when he discovered that yesteryear master of suspense films, Raj Khosla, had actually stayed in one of the rooms (that now serves as a guest room) in the flat that is Aamir’s current home.
Raj Khosla explored a variety of styles be it crime thrillers, suspense thrillers, musical, melodramas and dacoit dramas he is often credited for the success of actors such as Dev Anand. He’s the man who gave Bollywood memorable films like CID (1956), Woh Kaun Thi (1964) and Mera Saaya (1966) besides a host of other movies.
Aamir is a huge Raj Khosla fan and sources close to AK say that Talaash is his tribute to a man who made the best crime and suspense films.
Director Milan Luthria (Once Upon A Time In Mumbaai, The Dirty Picture) is Raj Khosla’s son.
Aamir Khan says he feels lucky to be at the current place where he resides.
