Thugs of Hindostan: Katrina Kaif to play Indian warrior princess; will perform sword fights, stunts

There were many speculations surrounding Katrina Kaif's character  in the upcoming action adventure film Thugs of Hindostan. It was rumoured that her character would be a dancer or a British woman, but it now emerges that she will play a radically different role.

A unit hand speaking to Mid-Day said, "Kaif plays a desi warrior princess in the film. Her character is feisty. So far, she hasn't shot for her action sequences, but there will a bunch of sword fighting stunts. She will be sporting a nose ring, wild loose waves and smokey kohled eyes. Her Indo-western outfits will be in earthy colours like grey-ish brown, blue and black. Though they will be inspired by the ghagra-choli, they will be quirkier."

Thugs of Hindostan marks the first collaboration between Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan, who will be seen on screen together. It is the second time that Khan will be working with Fatima Sana Shaikh after the 2016 film Dangal.

Thugs of Hindostan created buzz when a picture of Aamir Khan's look in the film went viral; in it, he can be seen sporting long hair and a nose ring. This look is very different from the ones he has sported in his previous films like Mangal Pandey: The Rising or Ghajini.

The shoot of the film, directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, has been going on in Malta, Southern Europe where two large ships have been built in the 18th century style. It is set to release on Diwali 2018; this date was postponed because Aamir Khan reportedly asked for additional time to hone his sword fighting skills.
