Confirmed! Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan to star in Thugs of Hindostan

Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, the film will go on floors early 2017.

After a lot of speculation, it has finally been confirmed that Aamir Khan will be sharing screen space with Amitabh Bachchan in Yash Raj Film’s upcoming project. Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, the film, titled Thugs of Hindostan, will go on the floors early next year. The makers are eyeing Dilwali 2018 for the release.

An elated Aamir shared the good news on his official Twitter account. “Finally, the moment I’ve been waiting for has come… to work with my icon, Mr Bachchan! Thanks Adi, Victor, for Thugs of Hindostan. I’m too thrilled to be working with the actor I have admired all of my life. Shoot starts early next year, and the release has been locked for Diwali 2018. Can’t wait to get started! Fingers crossed,” Aamir Khan tweeted.

A few days ago, Amitabh had also confirmed the news, calling it a great honour to be working with Aamir and Yash Raj.

Reportedly, the film was earlier offered to Hrithik Roshan, but the actor opted out of it, and Aamir hopped on board. With two superstars sharing the frame in the movie, which is based on the novel, Confessions of a Thug by Philip Meadows Taylor, one can assume that a masterpiece is in the making.
