After Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif, and Fatima Sana Shaikh, Aamir Khan has finally revealed his look from the year’s most highly anticipated film, Thugs of Hindostan. The actor took to his social media accounts to share an eccentric look from the film.
In a motion character poster shared on Monday, Aamir is seen in the weirdest outfit, sitting on a donkey. He is wearing a green jacket and a top hat. He has a big bottle of liquor by his side and red glasses on his eyes. He captions the photo in Hindi. "And this is me Firangi Mallah. You will not find anyone kinder than me on this planet. Truth is my second name and loyalty is in my work. I swear on my grandmother,” he wrote with the post.
The makers have been springing in surprises one after the other in the form of character posters, previously, the motion posters for other three leads of the film—Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh—were revealed last week. The trailer for the film will release on Yash Chopra’s birthday on September 27.
Aamir Khan took it to the Twitter and shared the motion poster of Amitabh Bachchan and introduced our favourite hooligan with the caption saying, “The biggest thug of all !!! Love, a.” Big B’s name in the movie is Khudabaksh and in the poster, he looks as captivating as he can be. With a sword in his hand, an armour on his body, a turban on his head and enthusiasm in his eyes, Amitabh Bachchan looks every bit terrifying and of course the biggest Thug there can be.
The next was the poster featuring Fatima who was called Zafira. Katrina’s poster introduced her as the sultry Surraiyya.
In an interview, Aamir has said about his role in the film that his character isn’t someone you could trust. “Thugs of Hindostan is a big action-adventure film. There’s no message in that. I am playing a character who cannot be trusted at all so it’s very opposite to the character I played in Dangal … He’s a very slippery character. He has no scruples at all – for money he can sell his mother out. He’s like that.”
“But the character is a very entertaining guy. So it’s a very entertaining kind of a film. No message this time. Just have a good time,” he further added.
The movie ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ is based on a true story of the Philip Meadows Taylor’s 1839 novel, Confessions of a Thug. It is about a gang who posed a serious challenge to the British Empire in India during the early 19th century. For the film, Yash Raj has built two mammoth ships weighing two lakh kilos on which the film has been shot. The film is all set to be released on November 8. The movie has been budgeted at approximately Rs 300 crore.
