Some actors are never content with anything-less-than-ordinary and Aamir Khan is one such person. With every role, with every movie, Aamir Khan breaks stereotypes and strives for excellence. He portrays all his characters with such finesse that the viewers are left with a craving for more. Experimentation is the key feels the actor, because without the surprise element it is not possible to retain the attention of the audience. All his fans are ready to welcome him in Thugs of Hindostan after his latest rendezvous in ‘The Secret Superstar’.
Aamir Khan will sport a completely different look in this Vijay Krishna Acharya’s venture. The film’s first look has revealed Aamir with a full-grown beard and handlebar moustache. The red turban-clad Aamir looks entirely different and his fans cannot be happier. Unlike Dangal, where Aamir required to put a lot of weight, Thugs of Hindostan needs a lean Aamir. Mr. Perfectionist ensures that all his roles are believable, hence he has been losing weight for his Thug of Hindostan look.
The film is based on Philip Meadows Taylor’s ‘Confessions of a Thug’. Another USP of this film is that this movie will see two of the biggest stars and the finest actors of the generation share screen space; Amitabh Bacchan and Aamir Khan. This multi-starrer will see Fatima Sana Shaikh pairing up with Aamir Khan again. Katrina Kaif who has earlier shared screen space with Aamir in Dhoom 3 will be seen in a pivotal role in this multi-starrer.
The storyline as divulged till now narrates the story of Ameer Ali, a Thug along with his gang posed a threat to the British Empire in the 19th century. Aamir khan will play the lead role with Amitabh playing the second lead known as Ismail. Some of the other actors finalized for the project are Ila Arun, Jackie Shroff, Shashank Arora, Satyadev Kancharana, and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub.
This Yah Raj production is slated for a Diwali release this year.
