‘Dangal’ star Fatima Sana Shaikh in Aamir Khan’s Thugs of Hindostan

Yash Raj Films has signed ‘Dangal’ star Fatima Sana Shaikh for the upcoming film ‘Thugs of Hindostan’, which industry-insiders say is the most expensive film ever made in Hindi.

The confirmation by the director of the film, Vijay Krishna Acharya (Victor), puts to rest rumours of Shraddha Kapoor and Kriti Sanon that have been doing the rounds.

Victor 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 the action. We are very happy to have found the perfect girl for our film.”

A newspaper quoted a source as saying “Fatimaโ€™s look test picture comes as a shock on several accounts. First, Fatima, who played Aamirโ€™s daughter in their last film, is auditioning for the female lead opposite him. Second, Aamir is known to never repeat his heroines. In this case too, technically, he wonโ€™t be doing it even if Fatima makes the cut as he was paired opposite Sakshi Tanwar in Dangal.”

The first shooting schedule of ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ begins on June 1 2017. The film will release during Diwali next year.

  • Everything about this movie looks good apart from Director.. Dhoom 3 was one of the worst movie ever.. Amir still shud change the director !!

  • Fatima was fabulous in Dangal…. Infact, Dangal’s 2nd half was all about her…. Hopefully she will have a mighty role to play in TOH..

  • Another AA clash. Usual suspect Ajay Devgn most likely and this time around Aamir has chosen Diwali not Christmas as a Solo release. Gradually gradually he will try and eye Eid but I dont think Salman will allow that.

  • I JUST LOVED HER… SHE IS SO PRETTY.. ALREADY PROPOSED HER IN MANIER WAYS..
    I TOOK HER KOFFE WITH KARAN EPISODE SO SERIOUSLY WHERE SHE SAID SHE WANTS A BF..

    ME BEING A MODEL… FOUND IT EASIER TO BE IN TOUCH WITH HER NOT PERSONALLY BT I OTHER MANY WAYS..

    HOPE SO SHE WILL RECOGNIZE ME SOME DAY..๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜โค

  • aajkal har movie is most expensive ban jaati hai.. right from padmavati to TZH to Dwarf to TOH to Dragon… everyone is claiming that their movie is the most expensive one

  • Means 2.0 records may just last for 8-9 months before Bollywood stamps its authority n prove to other industries that “they too have arrived!!!!”. Am sure real Bollywood fans would be proud to see its most expensive movie Thugs of Hindustan also stun the whole nation. Not only Aamir if it was any other Top actor with this budget and genre I would as wish them the same…. esp cos of those just who are downgrading Bollywood since epic Bahubaali the conclusion. All the best team TOH… One Bollywood one Unity one love!!

  • Good news. Haven’t watched Dangal but I have heard she is an excellent actress. Might be the number one actress. Dangal and then TOH. Thank god useless actresses like Anushka, Deepika, Kriti, Alia or Shraddha were not roped in, they only deserve craps like rom coms.

  • bahubali 2 has become highest wordwide grosser of indian cinema, still no article,kab tak hindi ka excuse doge, is not this an indian site, isnt bahubali indian movie? let me remind your sites full name, its indian cinema, agar bahubali se itni jalan hai to indicine se change kar apna naam hindicine rakh lo

  • as an ardent HR fan dnt know what to say or rather i should stay mum about
    this film…… ๐Ÿ˜‘
    FATIMA is looking mind-blowing by the way๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘

  • im still puzzled why aamir khan is doing a movie with crap director Vijay krisha. Im a huge fan of aamir but still dhoom 3 was a let down for me. i want the director to be changed as soon as possible. I dont want such a wonderful cast to go in vain.

  • @ Hinduistani, u must be a useless guy buy calling Anushka and Deepika and others useless. U just revealed ur true mental state which is alarmingly impaired and disgusting.
