Kriti Sanon to romance Aamir Khan in ‘Thugs of Hindostan’

According to the latest grapevine, Kriti Sanon will star opposite Aamir Khan in the ‘Thugs of Hindostan’. It is learnt that Aamir Khan wanted a younger face to cast opposite him and so he expressed his desire to rope in the ‘Diwale’ actress.

YRF’s ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ is making the right buzz from day one. The film will bring Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan for the first time. The film is set in the pre-independence era and it tells the story of a group of 'thugs' in British India who takes the lives of innocent people for money and other valuable items.

The film will go on floor in March 2017 and is slated to hit theatres in Diwali 2018.

Vijay Krishna Acharya will helm the project. Aamir Khan is thrilled to work with Amitabh Bachchan.

"Finally, the moment I've been waiting for has come... to work with my icon, Mr. Bachchan! Thanks Adi (Aditya Chopra), Victor, for 'Thugs of Hindostan'. I'm too thrilled to be working with the actor I have admired all of my life. 

"Shoot starts early next year, and the release has been locked for Diwali 2018. Can't wait to get started! Fingers crossed," Aamir posted on Facebook on Wednesday.
