The fact that Meerut is the ‘crime writing hub’ of the country, of course, fascinated Aamir Khan. When the 47-year-old actor learnt about Meerut and also that there are some great pulp fiction writers out there, he decided to head towards the city in Uttar Pradesh.
The 3 Idiots actor met Ved Prakash Sharma, a well-known writer there. He had a long chat with him and went through his novels, discussed and learned more about the suspense genre.
It was not just the Talaash effect but apparently Aamir as a person has always been interested in everything related to suspense.
Talaash is out now.
