Reportedly, along with Fatima Sana Shaikh, Katrina Kaif has also been roped in to play a part in Thugs Of Hindostan.
It was reported last week only that the Dangal girl has been signed for the female lead in Aamir Khan’s Thugs Of Hindostan. But now according to a report of Pinkvilla, the Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif has also been roped in to play a role opposite Mr. Perfectionist.
Another report of Bollywood Life quotes a source saying, “Aditya Chopra loved Aamir Khan’s pairing with Katrina in Dhoom 3. Salman had also recommended her name, so Aditya really wanted her to be a part of Thugs of Hindostan. His team approached Katrina with the part and she has accepted it.”
When the Dangal girl was announced to be signed in for the film, Vijay Krishna Acharya, the director of the film had said, “The role of the girl is pivotal to the film so it was crucial for us to find the perfect fit. Through a rigorous round of auditions and action workshops, we found in Fatima a truly dedicated actor and a gifted performer of the action. We are very happy to have found the perfect girl for our film.”
But now it seems that Fatima alone is not the female lead as Katrina would be joining her too as in another lead role. Apart from these female leads, and Aamir Khan as the male lead, the film also has Amitabh Bachchan in a pivotal role.
Thugs Of Hindostan is reportedly based on the novel, Confessions Of A Thug. The film is going to be set in the back drop of Indian pre-independence period of 1830s where the notorious thugs torture and murder the travellers for money and other valuable stuffs.
Going to be directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, the film is a Yash Raj Production venture. It is expected to go on the floors in early June.
