Talaash based on real life incident: Zoya Akhtar
"I had an experience which I could not explain to myself and to others while I was on my way back from a south Mumbai party," Zoya said in a statement.
The suspense of Talaash has taken everyone by surprise. But little do people know that the climax of the film takes its cue from a real-life incident involving its writer Zoya Akhtar.

Zoya revealed that it was this experience that gave birth to the idea of Talaash.

"I had an experience which I could not explain to myself and to others while I was on my way back from a south Mumbai party," Zoya said in a statement.

"It was near Haji Ali. All six of us, who were travelling went through this. And this experience which I went through, became the vital ingredient of the story of Talaash. I spoke to Reema (Kagti) about the incident and hence it became the initial trigger point of the script that we wrote together," she added.

Directed by Reema Kagti, the film has opened with rave reviews. It has Aamir Khan, Rani Mukerji and Kareena Kapoor in the lead.
