According to a leading daily, Talaash director Reema Kagti wanted Rani to go completely make-up free for the film. Talking to the daily, Kagti said that Rani plays the role of Roshni (Aamir's wife in the movie). Roshni is someone, who "is dealing with extreme emotional upheaval."
As per Reema, she thinks that Rani, who is on a certain emotional plight in the movie, need not look gorgeous and stunning onsreen. Hence, the actress was directed to face the camera without make-up. This isn't the first time, as earlier actresses like Katrina Kaif and Kareena Kapoor too had gone natural and make-up free in their movies.
