Suneel Darshan has tried his hand at a romantic thriller for the first time in 'Talaash', starring Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor. He has directed 'Talaash' for Pahlaj Nihalni's banner, Chiragdeep International and claims that his movie has no resemblance with the 60s hit 'Talaash' starring Sharmila Tagore and Rajendra Kumar. Darshan distinguishes his movie from the 60s 'Talaash', "My film is a romance with a nail biting climax. It's not a typical thriller but the film has its unpredictable moments. Kareena plays a bold young woman, who is infatuated with a mysterious stranger (Akshay)."

During the year 2002, Akshay Kumar has played a flamboyant don in 'Awara Paagal Deewana' and a superstar in 'Haan Maine Bhi Pyar Kiya'. During the year his third movie 'Talaash' will hit the screens on Dec 6. Since Karisma bowed out of the race, her young sis Kareena stepped into her place. According to Sunil Darshan, Kareena is a born star and spontaneous, while Karisma is a hardworking actress. Sunil Darshan is confident that the 'Talaash' will prove a hit of Akshay and Kareena working together. This is to be recalled that Kareena was only nine years old when she first met Akshay. About Akshay she says, "He was shooting with Karisma for 'Deedar', their first film together, and I've watched several shots being canned sitting on his (Akshay) lap. He's an amazing person to work with - a perfect gentleman and a professional".
