Superstar Aamir Khan, who is gearing up for the release of Thugs Of Hindostan, says it is a dream come true for him to share space on a poster with megastar Amitabh Bachchan. “To see myself on a poster with Mr. Bachchan is a dream come true for me. I still can’t believe it,” Aamir tweeted on Tuesday.
He shared a poster featuring all four key characters of the movie. Apart from Aamir and Amitabh, the movie stars Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh. This film will mark the first time Aamir and Amitabh will be seen sharing screen space together. The mega action adventure by Yash Raj Films is set to releases on November 8.
In an interview, Aamir Khan 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.
