Superstar Aamir Khan has revealed that he will sport a lean look as well as grow his hair and keep a beard for his upcoming film Thugs of Hindostan.
“I am planning to cut down on my body fat… I don’t want to be muscular. In ‘Thugs..’ my look is not muscular it’s not a wrestler’s physique. It will be a lean look,” Aamir told reporters here at an event of Dangal.
At the promotional event of Dangal, Aamir was seen in bearded look and had covered his hair with a scarf. “This look is for Thugs of Hindostan with Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan)… this is not the final look. I am growing beard and hair. I don’t know what will be the final look, we will get to know about it in two months.”
The 51-year-old star said he will start shooting for the film in March next year. Produced by Yash Raj Films, the film will be helmed by Vijay Krishna Acharya. Both Vijay and Aamir worked together on Dhoom 3.

The film which is based on wrestling also deals with women empowerment as its core subject and this increases the need for the movie to be seen and heard.
