Thugs of Hindostan will release on November 8, 2018.
Starting with the superstar, Amitabh Bachchan is seen as a commander of a huge ship, getting ready for war. The official description of his character reads, “Wading through storms & battles, the commander of Thugs has arrived. Amitabh Bachchan as #Khudabaksh.”
In the twenty-six-second long motion poster, Amitabh Bachchan is holding a sword in his hand, an armour on his body, a turban on his head and passion in his eyes. We couldn’t have ever dreamt of a better thug! Sharing this poster, Katrina Kaif wrote, "The captain of Thugs has sailed in! @amitabhbachchan as #Khudabaksh." Fatima Sana Shaikh shared the poster on Instagram and wrote, "Leading the troop of Thugs like a true boss! Here's the legendary @amitabhbachchan as #Khudabaksh. #ThugsOfHindostan."
Moving on to the second character of the film- the rising star of Bollywood Fatima Sana Shaikh aka Zafira. Acing the rusty and fierce look of a fighter, Fatima surely has a long way to go in her career. The official description of Fatima’s character reads, “Zafira is fiery and stunning. She is an extremely talented fighter and specialises in combat by bow and arrow. Zafira has perfect accuracy and she doesn’t miss a target, ever. Fatima Sana Shaikh as Zafira brings vigour and freshness to Thugs of Hindostan.”
In the motion poster, Dangal star is seen coming through from flames and with a palace in the background. With a scar on her eyebrow, Fatima has surely set the bar higher. Just like the film’s logo and Amitabh Bachchan’s character poster, the background score of this recently released poster is something which is going to stay with you for long.
Sharing the motion poster on Twitter, the official handle of Yash Raj Films wrote, “With fire in her heart, here’s @fattysanashaikh as #Zafira”. Mr. Perfectonist Aamir Khan also tweeted the short teaser and wrote, “The warrior thug! Iskey nishane se bach ke raho!!!”
Based on Philip Meadows Taylor’s novel Confessions of a Thug and the cult of the Thuggee, this magnum-opus will blow our minds! There is just one thing left to say; the expectations and curiosity for Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif's character look have just increased.
The film details the lives and activities of a gang of thugs who murdered travelers for money and valuables, Thugs of Hindostan has been shot across Mumbai, Malta, Morocco and Thailand. The movie will hit screens on November 8, 2018.
