Aamir Khan’s next Thugs of Hindostan has been in the news for a long time, mostly because of the leading actress of the film. While several names have surfaced for the role, the latest buzz is that Fatima Sana Shaikh of Dangal fame is being considered for the movie.
Well, if Fatima is finalised for the role, this will be another HUGE opportunity for her after Dangal. In fact, in one of her interviews with us during Dangal, we had asked Fatima if she would like to audition for a role in Thugs since the leading ladies are yet to be finalised. She said that she would love to work with Aamir once again. “Of course I would love to. I would love to work with Aamir sir again in Thugs of Hindostan,” Fatima said.
Earlier Alia Bhatt, Kriti Sanon and Vaani Kapoor’s names were doing the rounds. But things didn’t materialise and the makers are yet to lock the final lead actress. There were reports that television actress Mrunal Thakur had also taken a look test for the role.
For those who don’t know, the storyline of Thugs of Hindostan is quite intriguing as it is based on the similar lines of Pirates of the Caribbean.
Although reports of the script undergoing change and matching to Matchstick Men were also doing the rounds but no confirmation has been given on the same as yet. So all that we know for now about the film is that it is about pirates and their adventurous voyage. Of course the storyline is an interesting one and with two legendary actors Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan being a part of it makes it even more special. but we would definitely love to know whether Fatima has been finalised for the role or no. Let’s hope that they make an official confirmation soon.
Meanwhile, Thugs of Hindostan is about pirates and their adventurous voyage. Rumour has it that the storyline of the film is quite fascinating and is on the lines of Pirates of the Caribbean. Directed by Vijay Acharya.
