Yash Raj banner has managed to sign some of the best industry names for their upcoming film ‘Thugs of Hindostan’. A fiction fantasy-adventure and action film dating back to the times between 1790 and 1805, starring Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Sheikh in pivotal roles.
Aamir Khan recently spilled the beans on the film’s production status, “I am going abroad for a few days. Once I am back, we will resume shooting the climax in Rajasthan.” The film will be completed by March-end.
Aamir Khan will be seen wearing kohl, sporting long tresses, very unlike his previous characters. His look will be accessorized with nose rings, earrings and will be out for everyone to see in the film’s much awaited ‘first look’ poster.
Katrina and Fatima play warrior princesses and will be seen in high-octane sword fights, with a look which would be feisty and bold. Their costumes will loosely be inspired by the desi ghaghra choli, albeit quirkier.
The film is shot against the exotic high seas of Malta, a virginal European island nation and will culminate in Rajasthan. Katrina is given yet another challenging song in terms of choreography; some rehearsal videos have her perform difficult mid-air sequences and flips.
The film is slated to release on November 7th, the festive weekend of Diwali. We can’t wait to see the extensive production design, chemistry between the lead actors and promotional campaigns.
