Aamir Khan, Big B’s ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ logo gives dark & gritty vibe

Two of Bollywood’s biggest actors – Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan will share screen space for the first time in ‘Thugs of Hindostan’, and the much-talked-about movie is ready to roll on floors in the first week of June.

Days before the film kickstarts its shooting, the makers have released its official logo. The logo doesn’t have any images of the film’s cast, but only has the title written in bold grey fonts in a darker backdrop. It also includes the names of director Vijay Krishan Acharya, producer Aditya Chopra and his production banner Yash Raj Films.

Besides Big B and Aamir, the movie also stars ‘Dangal’ actress Fatima Sana Sheikh and Katrina Kaif.

Renowned film critic-cum-trade analyst Taran Adarsh shared the logo on Twitter writing, “And here's the logo of #ThugsOfHindostan... Stars Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, Fatima Sana Shaikh... Diwali 2018 release.”

The shooting of the film will begin on June 5 in the picturesque isle of Malta in Europe. The first schedule is a big action sequence and will be filmed in the relatively unexplored ocean-side scenery of the island nation.

The cast and crew will be filming in two specially constructed massive ships, built over two months that are currently docked by the Maltese seaside.

"The set of the film is in a high security water zone, with restricted access. Both these ships have been built in the early eighteenth century style, when vessels would carry cannons and other weapons. An international crew has been hard at work creating these elaborate ships in Malta. Most of the portions filmed on board these ships involve high octane action," director Vijay Krishna Acharya said in a statement.

‘Thugs of Hindostan’ is scheduled for release on Diwali 2018.
