Thugs of Hindostan is an adaptation of Philip Meadows Taylor’s 1839 novel “Confession of a Thug”. The novel was about a gang of Thugs during the early 19th century, who posed a serious challenge to the British Empire in India (then known as Hindustan or Hindostan).
The film has been investing in some extraordinary props and locations and is said to have the most expensive outdoor schedules in the history of Indian cinema. The film has a budget of approximately Rs 300 crores and is set in the period of 1790 to 1805.
Khan had earlier spoken briefly about the film and his character with South China Morning Post: Thugs of Hindostan is a big action-adventure film. There’s no message in that. I’m playing a character who cannot be trusted at all – [so it’s the] very opposite of Dangal … He’s a very slippery character. He has no scruples at all – for money he can sell his mother out. He’s like that. But [the character] is a very entertaining guy. So it’s a very entertaining kind of a film. No message this time. Just have a good time.”
Thugs of Hindostan is being projected like an epic and with YRF producing the film, we can assume that they will leave no stone unturned in making a visually stunning epic. After looking at the motion poster, the wait for this long in the making project has just got difficult. With Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan in lead roles, this film is definitely the one to watch out for.
