‘Thugs of Hindostan’ is a periodical drama and it is for the first time Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan are sharing screen space together. Aamir Khan in the film has played a character called Firangi Mallah, who is devoid of ideals and morals. Can this film break the record of ‘Sanju’ and ‘Padmaavat’ (two of the biggest hits this year in terms of revenue)? Now that would be interesting to watch.
