Now this is a coup!
Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan have joined hands with Yash Raj Films for a movie called Thugs of Hindostan. The movie will be directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, who previously helmed Tashan (2008) and Dhoom:3 (2013) for the production house.
The movie will start production early next year for a Diwali 2018 release.
The subject, as the title suggests, will be the Thugs who ran rampant in North and Central India till the early part of the 20th century.
Although Acharya’s track record is blotchy as far as quality is concerned, taking into account the talent of the actors involved, we can safely assume that the movie will not be a run-of-the-mill product.
