Mr Perfectionist of Bollywood, Aamir Khan is creating a stir, pumping curiosity and stimulating anticipation by dropping unique motion posters from his upcoming film Thugs of Hindostan.
After releasing the first looks of Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh, Aamir Khan finally unveiled his first look from the film.
Going by the way Aamir has been introduced in the poster, it looks likely that the superstar’s character has a comical element.
Aamir wrote: “और इ हैँ हम, फिरंगी मल्लाह.
हम से ज्यादा नेक इन्सान इस धरती पे कहीं नहीं मिलेगा आपको.
सच्चाई तो हमरा दूसरा नाम है, और भरोसा हमरा काम.
दादी कसम !!! (sic).”
The 25-second teaser begins with a canon being shot from a ship which soon turns into a label on a liquour bottle that is safely stacked around Aamir’s waist. And that’s when you meet Firangi Mallah.
Handlebar moustache, ruffled hair, rose-tinted glasses, green coat and a big smile. Meet Firangi. The latest thug on board, who looks more cheerful and colourful than any of the characters.
Reportedly set in the backdrop of India under the British rule in the 19th century, Thugs of Hindostan is inspired by Philip Meadows Taylor’s 1839 novel Confessions of a Thug. It revolves around the life of a thug and his gang who challenge the British Empire in the country.
Thugs of Hindostan is slated to release on November 8.
