From rave reviews to overwhelming footfalls, Aamir Khan's Talaash has hit the bull's eye, despite the fact it has come out during non-festive season. 

Trade pundits predict that the film is likely to collect Rs 15 crores on its opening day.

Usually, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan choose to release their films during holiday season in a bid to attract more audiences, however, Aamir defied the norm by releasing Talaash during a non-festive weekend.
