‘Thugs of Hindostan’ is the most awaited release of the year. The film is a star-studded entertainer directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya. The looks of Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif, Fatima Sana Sheikh and Lloyd Owen were released earlier. The eagerly awaited look of Aamir Khan’s character was revealed to the public by Yash Raj Films on Monday morning via a motion poster.
Firangi is the fifth character of the film to be revealed to the public. The film is slated for a Diwali release.
Before we can see ‘Firangi’ Aamir Khan, the focus is on a ship and this focus slowly shifts to a liquor bottle sported by him. Dressed in an eccentric outfit including a green jacket and a hat, Aamir Khan is seen seated on a donkey that is loaded with goods. The look gives an impression of a cheerful personality and has been compared to the pirate ‘Jack Sparrow’ by the Twitterati.
“You can never be prepared enough for this Thug. Presenting @aamir_khan as #Firangi.” is the official YRF Twitter caption accompanying the poster. According to Aamir, ‘Firangi is an untrustworthy, slippery and entertaining character. The film is meant to provide pure entertainment without any message this time round.
The character played by Amitabh “Khudabaksh” was the first one to be revealed. Aamir describes the character as the ‘biggest thug of them all’. This was followed by “Zafira” played by Fatima. Katrina is introduced as the sultry “Surraiyya”. Lloyd Owen is the villain John Clive.
Yash Chopra’s birthday is the scheduled date for the release of the trailer, while the film will be released on November 8, 2018 to delight the fans during the Diwali weekend.
