One of the most anticipated movies of 2018 will release on November 8. Yes, we are talking about Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan starrer Thugs of Hindostan. The film is expected to create ripples in the film industry with its big star cast and grand visuals. But before the movie hits theaters, here is an introduction to the movie’s primary characters.

Amitabh Bachchan as Khudabaksh

The Shehenshah of Bollywood will be seen leading a pack of warriors in the action adventure. Amitabh will be seen essaying the role of commander Khudabaksh. His character dons a turban, an outlandish attire and a sword. From the trailer, songs and motion poster, it would be safe to assume that the Bollywood megastar is fighting the good fight against the British Raj. Now the only thing remains to be seen if he will end up on the winning side.

Aamir Khan as Firangi

As has been mentioned numerous times before, Aamir Khan’s character in Thugs of Hindostan is reminiscent of The Pirates of the Carribean’s Jack Sparrow. Why, you ask? Because Firangi, just like Jack Sparrow, seems like a trickster, whose ultimate motive seems driven by something extremely selfish. He will be seen locking horns with both the British Raj and Amitabh Bachchan’s band of revolutionaries at different points in the movie.

Katrina Kaif as Suraiyya

Katrina Kaif will once again be seen making people sway and swoon with her moves in the upcoming Thugs of Hindostan. From the looks of it, the actor will be playing the role of a courtesan/seductress who will charm Aamir Khan’s ‘Firangi’. Katrina “plays the role of an outrageously beautiful performer Suraiyya in Thugs of Hindostan. Suraiyya is the most gorgeous girl in British India who makes every man go weak in their knees. She is the best dancer of the country that people throng to watch,” a statement from the makers stated.

Fatima Sana Shaikh as Zafira

Dangal’s breakout star Fatima Sana Shaikh will be seen in a fierce avatar in Thugs of Hindostan. In the motion poster and teasers, Fatima is seen matching strides with Amitabh Bachchan’s Khudabaksh with a lot of sass and spirit. She plays the role of a warrior in the film called Zafira who will aid Big B’s Khudabaksh in the ultimate battle of freedom.

Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, Thugs of Hindostan will release on November 8, 2018.
