After the warriors of Thugs of Hindostan, it’s the villain of the epic drama who was introduced today. Yash Raj Films shared the motion poster of British actor Lloyd Owen who plays the villain John Clive in the magnum opus. In the poster, we see him leading the British army and giving them the order to fire. Clive comes across as barbaric which makes it clear that the gang of thugs including Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Fatima Sana Shaikh is not going to have it easy. The official description of Lloyd’s character reads, “Cruel and merciless”.

Sharing the teaser on Twitter, Aamir wrote, “John Clive..not to be confused with Robert you can see he is one of the most gentle and kind souls. Loving, caring nonviolent, and generous. My idol.” According to the makers, Lord John Clive is the face of British Raj in India and a symbol of evil and deadly ambition.
