Will Aamir Khan sport a nose pin in Thugs of Hindostan?

The method actor that he is Aamir Khan is known to go to great lengths to perfect his role. He did not hesitate to put on oodles of weight for Dangal (2016), which went to become a blockbuster.
Khan has dressed in drag before, but we can't recall seeing him sport a nose pin before. Khan was snapped wearing a nose stud and sporting a moustache in a picture posted by Sushant Singh Rajput, Khan’s co-actor from Pk (2014).
Calling him an inspiration and a perfectionist, Rajput posted this interesting picture with Khan.
It is well known that director Vijay Krishna Acharya's Thugs of Hindostan is a pre-Independence period film in which Khan and Amitabh Bachchan play con artistes.
Rural men, especially from Rajasthan, aren’t averse to wearing nose rings. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Khan sports a nose ring. The big moustache and beard makes him look a bit strange.
The big question is: Will Amitabh Bachchan don a similar avatar too? Khan is known to drape a thick veil around most of his films. For all we know, this look might just be another diversion. Thugs of Hindostan will release next year.
