His upcoming film, Thugs of Hindostan, starring Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh has been the buzz of the film industry ever since it was announced.

The film is rumoured to be based on sea pirates, and hence it was much speculated that Khan will don a Captain Jack Sparrow (from Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise) look in the film.

However, Khan refuted all speculations related to it by saying, "The film is not inspired from any other film. It is an action adventure film but the story is not similar. There are some hundreds of action adventure films. There is Pirates of the Caribbean, there is Indiana Jones and many others. All these are action adventure films. So the genre of our film is action adventure but the story is different. Even my character in the film is not similar to any other character," reports IANS.

While most of the details pertaining to the film has been kept under wraps by Yash Raj Films, time and again many pictures from the sets have been doing rounds on the Internet — including Khan's first look with long hair and nose pins, the early-eighteenth-century-styled ship on which portions of the film has been shot in Malta etc.

Recently, Aamir Khan Productions took to its Instagram account and posted pictures of Khan on the sets of Thugs of Hindostan:
