    18th September 2018

    The makers of one of the highly anticipated films of the year 'Thugs of Hindostan' recently gave away the logo poster of their film. They are now set to introduce the main characters from the film one by one beginning with the legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan.

    Taking the inspiration from the Pirates of the Caribbean character of Captain Hector Barbossa we are introduced to our greatest Thug Khudabaksh and Big B just slays in this heavy costume avatar densely bearded giving a fierce stare.

    Co-star Aamir Khan shared Big B's motion poster and wrote, "The biggest thug of all !" In a semi-Shehanshah outfit, Amitabh sports a huge turban and holds a sword in his left hand accompanied by a vulture to complete his strong character. Click here to watch motion poster. 

    Earlier in March this year Big B suffered acute pain in his shoulders and back. Later the 75-year-old actor was flown to Mumbai, where his actress wife Jaya Bachchan said, "The costumes are very heavy, so, there's some pain. Otherwise, he is fine."

    Helmed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, Thugs of Hindostan is based on Philip Meadows Taylor's novel 'Confessions of a Thug'. It also stars Fatima Sana Shaikh and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles. Scheduled for Diwali release, the film is slated to release on November 8.
