Katrina Kaif reunites with Aamir Khan for ‘Thugs of Hindostan’


After signing Fatima Sana Sheikh for ‘Thugs of Hindostan’, the makers of the film have now roped in Katrina Kaif for the Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan starrer. Katrina has previously worked with Aamir in ‘Dhoom 3’, and with Big B in ‘Sarkar’ and her debut ‘Boom’.

Reportedly, Katrina’s ex-flame-turned-good friend Salman Khan suggested her name for the film to Aditya Chopra, who liked her pairing opposite ‘Aamir in Dhoom 3’. Katrina too was spotted at Yash Raj Films’ office discussing the project with the makers, and it seems the meeting has borne fruit.

"Aditya Chopra loved Aamir Khan's pairing with Katrina in Dhoom 3. Salman had also recommended her name, so Aditya really wanted her to be a part of Thugs of Hindostan. His team approached Katrina with the part and she has accepted it," a leading entertainment site quoted a source as saying.

A few days ago, the film’s director Vijay Krishna Acharya aka Victor in a press statement confirmed finalising the ‘Dangal’ actress for the film. Fatima played the role of Aamir’s screen daughter in the sports biopic which was her debut film.

It was previously reported that Aditya didn't like the idea of Fatima romancing Aamir in her very next movie after ‘Dangal’. So perhaps, Katrina and not Fatima will romance Aamir in the YRF production.

‘Thugs of Hindostan’ is one of the most anticipated films. It is a period love story, an adaptation of Philip Meadows Taylor’s novel ‘Confessions of A Thug’, set in India in 1832.

The movie is in its pre-production stage and will go on floors in early June.
