Aamir Khan starrer Thugs of Hindostan is all set to hit theaters on November 8. The film also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Sheikh. Ahead of the release, Aamir spoke to a group of journalists shedding light on his equation with his co-stars.

While he confessed being nervous about shooting with Bachchan, Aamir had some fun words to share about Katrina. Lauding her dance skills, the 53-year-old smiled to say, “She is an alien. Mujhe toh woh is gole ki lagti hi nahi (she is not from this planet). How she dances so well? I just can’t understand that.”

Katrina and Aamir have earlier worked together in Dhoom 3. In the same film, Katrina performed some exemplary moves in songs like Kamli and Malang. And from the time Suraiyya from Thugs was released, Katrina’s performance has become the talk of the town.

Mentioning about the same, Aamir said, “For Suraiyya, Prabhudheva was doing the choreography. When I saw the steps on the first day, I thought she won’t be able to match up with the moves. It was so difficult but she somehow manages to do everything. She is very hardworking. She cracks every move.”

And when asked how he manages to match steps with her, Aamir laughed to say, “If you have seen it, I am just having fun in the song. I am not dancing. If I would have to do the dance, it would have taken two-four years to complete it. She is unbelievable, I can never match up to her.”

Set in 1795, Thugs of Hindostan has been directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya.
