The wait for information on an Aamir Khan starrer is always long. The actor is known for keeping his looks and other aspects about his roles under wraps until the film is released. Who can forget how he kept the news of his double role in Dhoom 3 (2013) a secret up until its release?
However, this time around, a behind-the-scenes picture from the shoot of his upcoming film Thugs Of Hindostan has emerged on social media. The picture, most probably taken from a mobile phone, has Khan dressed in a period wear for his role in the film. He sports curly hair, which might be a first for him. The dirt on his face gives an idea that his character could have been involved in a serious fight sequence.
Thugs Of Hindostan is an adaptation of Philip Meadows Taylor's 1893 book Confessions Of A Thug, that is based on a Thugee cult in British India. Thugs are criminals who murder people to loot their valuables. Khan is likely to play Ameer Ali, the fictional anti-hero of Taylor's book.
Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya (of Dhoom 3 fame), Thugs Of Hindostan has been in the news ever since it was announced, as it brings Khan and Amitabh Bachchan together for the first time. The film also stars Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh. Shaikh is known for her role in Dangal (2016), where she played Khan’s daughter Geeta Phoghat.
Thugs Of Hindostan will be released on 7 November, 2018.
