Mumbai, Sep 24: He rides a donkey, sports curly brown hair and wears a hat. Aamir Khan, who finally unveiled his look from the year’s most highly anticipated film “Thugs of Hindostan” on Monday, sports an intriguing avatar for his role as the wily Firangi in the Yash Raj Films project.
Aamir shared his look via a motion poster on social media and penned a message in Hindi for his fans.
Introducing his character, he said people won’t find a more honest person on earth than him, and that honesty is the second name of his character.
Previously, the motion posters for the other three leads of the film—Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh—were revealed last week.
The trailer for the film will release on Yash Chopra’s birthday on September 27.
“Thugs of Hindostan”, directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, promises to be the biggest visual spectacle on the big screen with jaw-dropping action sequences and an epic war on the seas.
The film is based on Philip Meadows Taylor’s 1839 novel ‘Confessions of a Thug’ and is about a gang who posed a serious challenge to the British Empire in India (then known as Hindustan or Hindostan) during the early 19th century.
The makers have pulled off an incredible casting coup by bringing together Amitabh Bachchan — who plays the role of the fierce warrior Khudabaksh — and Aamir on screen for the first time. It also stars Katrina Kaif as performer and Suraiyya and Fatima Sana Shaikh as the daredevil Zafira.
It will light up Diwali with its release on November 8.
