Aamir Khan opens up about Thugs of Hindostan

Aamir Khan is in China presently, promoting his latest production, The Secret Superstar, which is doing roaring business out there, having garnered Rs 264.61 crore so far. Following its release in the Chinese market, the film has become 2017’s second highest-grossing Indian film worldwide. It is also the third highest-grossing Hindi film ever overseas.

Basking in the glory of the film, Aamir, who has a huge fan following in China, interacted with cinephiles and the media while participating in the Chinese-Indian film forum in Beijing a couple of days ago.

Speaking at the event, Aamir said he was happy to be in China, and that he was grateful to all his fans in that country. He also expressed a desire to work with Chinese talent and talked about bringing actors from both countries together in a film.

“There are many talented filmmakers in China. I really want to do a film with Chinese and Indian talent. It will be really fantastic. I like to tell stories which people of both the countries would love to see. I think it will also bring two countries closer. It would be wonderful for Indian audiences too to witness Chinese actors and talent,” he added.

Aamir also took the occasion to open up about his magnum-opus, Thugs of Hindostan, directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya of Dhoom 3 fame.

“It’s a big action-adventure movie,” said Aamir. “The film is set in the period from 1790 to 1805. It is not a historical film but a fiction set in that period. The look that I sport now, including the long hair, the nose ring, and ear-piercing, is for that film,” he added.

And if the response to Dangal and The Secret Superstar is anything to go by, one can safely assume that Thugs of Hindostan is going to get a great reception in China.
