My role as cop is different, says Aamir

Bollywood actor Aamir Khan, who plays a policeman’s role in his upcoming film Talaash, says that he doesn’t want to compete with Ajay Devgn, Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar who have also played such roles in films earlier.

‘I don’t want to compete with anyone. Ajay, Salman and Akshay have been cops earlier but this is very different. My character is struggling with his past. This is not an out and out entertainer, but I liked it,’ he said at the music launch of the film.

The actor has given many super hits like 3 Idiots and Taare Zameen Par but says that he doesn’t let the pressure of his earlier performances get to him.

‘The pressure will always be there.  I make sure that the pressure doesn’t come in my way of work,’ he said.

Directed by Reema Kagti, the suspense thriller also stars Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji.

Aamir has been seen as an police officer in his earlier film, Sarfarosh as well, but said that his role in this film didn't require him to do as much research.

‘I didn’t have to research as much as I had to in Sarfarosh. It is different here. We did little research in terms of costumes for the film,’ he said.

Kareena Kapoor plays the role of a hooker in the film while Rani is Aamir’s wife. Talking about the casting of the film, the actor feels it is completely flawless.

‘The casting of this film is a big strength. The way the characters have been written make them all very important,’ he said.

‘When I choose a film, I am like an audience. If it touches me and I like it, I do it,’ said Aamir.

‘It has been my dream to work with Aamir. He has given a lot of creative inputs...,’ said Reema.

The film is set to release on  30 November.
