Mumbai: Bollywood star Aamir Khan interacted with night patrolling policemen to know more about their work after sunset so that he could give perfect shots in his forthcoming thriller Talaash.
The 47 year old will be seen as Inspector Surjan Singh Shekhawat in the film for which many scenes were shot after sunset.
A source said, "Almost all of the major scenes have been shot during the night. Since the shooting would take place after sunset, there would be cops on the sets. Aamir often chatted with them asking details about their work and inquiring about the places that they would visit often."
Directed by Reema Kagti, Talaash, is a thriller that also stars Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji. Slated for a November 30 release, the film has been co-written by Kagti and Zoya Akhtar.
"Night seems to be a key player in the film's storyline. The idea of making this film had also stemmed from an incident involving cops that was witnessed by Zoya and Reema who then wrote this project," another source added.
