Fatima Sana Sheikh in Thugs of Hindostan

After Dangal, Aamir Khan roped in Zaira Wasim, who essayed the role of the younger Geeta Phogat in the movie, for The Secret Superstar. The film has released and is doing very well. But what about Fatima Sana Sheikh, who played the older Geeta in Dangal

Well, Fatima, or Fatty, as she is called, gets to star in Thugs of Hindostan, Aamir Khan’s next venture.

Thugs of Hindostan has been directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, and stars Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Fatima Sana Sheikh and Katrina Kaif in lead roles.

The music has been composed by Ajay-Atul, and it has been produced by Aditya Chopra under the Yash Raj Films banner. The movie is based on the book, Confessions of a Thug, written by Philip Meadows Taylor. The budget is a whopping Rs 100 crore.

Incidentally, this is the first time that Aamir and Bachchan will be sharing screen space.

Thugs of Hindostan is set to be released during Diwali next year. Filming commenced in June this year, and Fatima is reported to be very excited about this role. Aamir has personally praised her performance and said he was happy about casting her in the movie.

There was some speculation that Thugs Of Hindostan has been inspired by the Johnny Depp-starrer, Pirates of the Caribbean. However, Aamir has dismissed these rumours, saying Thugs of Hindostan is an action-adventure movie that has no similarity with Pirates of the Caribbean.

If Dangal and The Secret Superstar are any indication, then Thugs of Hindostan will be something to look out for. And to top it, viewers will get to see the Big B and Mr Perfectionist together on the big screen. That has not happened before, right?
