Thugs of Hindostan’s New Poster Released

Thugs of Hindostan new motion poster: Get ready for Firangi Aamir Khan this Diwali.

New poster, from the ambitious new YRF film Thugs of Hindostan, starring Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan, is now out. Featuring Aamir Khan as Firangi, the new motion poster looks interesting and colourful all the way.

Taking to Instagram, Aamir Khan introduced Thug Firangi with a caption that read, “और इ हैँ हम, फिरंगी मल्लाह. हम से ज्यादा नेक इन्सान इस धरती पे कहीं नहीं मिलेगा आपको. सच्चाई तो हमरा दूसरा नाम है, और भरोसा हमरा काम.दादी कसम!!!”.

So far, we’ve met Amitabh Bachchan’s Khudabaksh the ‘biggest thug of all,’ as Aamir put it and Fatima Sana Shaikh’s archer Zafira, villain John Clive, and Katrina Kaif as Suraiyya and now Firangi Aamir Khan.

Thugs of Hindostan has been made on a massive budget. “Since sea and ships play an integral part in the plot, Aamir as well as (producer) Aditya Chopra were sure that they would go all out to present the biggest spectacle that Hindi cinema has ever witnessed. The film’s budgets are yet to be ascertained, but the cost for the two ships easily runs into several crores”, a source was quoted.

The two mammoth ships weighing two lakh kilos were built by over 1,000 people, including international designers and ship makers. “It took over a year to build these two ships off the coast of Malta (in Europe). Director Viktor (Vijay Krishna Acharya) wanted to go the whole hog in terms of scale and create a huge visual experience. Authenticity and aesthetics have both been kept in mind given the fact that it’s a period film.”

Thugs of Hindostan is based on Philip Meadows Taylor’s 1839 novel, Confessions of a Thug. The film releases November 8 to coincide with the Diwali weekend.
