Actress Fatima Sana Shaikh, who made an impressive debut with the film Dangal, joins the star-studded cast of Yash Raj Films’ forthcoming mega project Thugs of Hindostan. Co-starring Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan, writer-director Vijay Krishna Acharya will be directing the film.
This is the second time Vijay Krishna Acharya (Victor) will be directing Aamir Khan after the blockbuster Dhoom 3. Thugs of Hindostan unites Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan onscreen for the first time and promises to be a larger than life, grand cinematic experience.
Writer-director Vijay Krishna Acharya said, “The role of the girl is pivotal to the film so it was crucial for us to find the perfect fit. Through a rigorous round of auditions and action workshops, we found in Fatima a truly dedicated actor and a gifted performer of action. We are very happy to have found the perfect girl for our film.”
The film begins shooting on June 1 with the film set to release for Diwali 2018.
