Thugs of Hindostan Movie production
In September 2016, Yash Raj Films’ next project, titled Thugs of Hindostan, was announced and stated that it would include Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. The lead actress’s name was not finalized at that time. The film was initially titled Thugs Only. The film’s release was scheduled for Diwali in 2018. Hrithik Roshan, who was initially approached with the lead role of the film, suggested some changes to the script. Meanwhile Acharya approached Khan with the script, who agreed not to make any changes to the film’s story.
In November 2016, Khan also requested that the script be reworked, particularly the character of the lead actress, and the project be put on hold. Meanwhile, he grew his hair and beard for his look in the film. In the same month, Shraddha Kapoor gave a costume look test and audition for the film. In March 2017, it was reported that Khan suggested Fatima Sana Shaikh’s name for a role in the film; Refuting the rumors of casting, Sheikh expressed his eagerness to work in the project. In May 2017, Sheikh was confirmed to play a role in the film, which revealed her audition look. He replaces Kapoor.
Kaif was confirmed to star in the film on the official website of Yash Raj Films. Khan, Bachchan and Acharya met during the month of May to discuss the script change. Contrary to early reports, the film is not based on Philip Meadows Taylor’s 1839 novel Confessions of a Thug; The film is a fictional story based on historical events. The acharya combines the misunderstanding of the word thug appearing in both works.

Bachchan wore iron armor to play his character, the second time he did it after the 1988 film Shahenshah. Also, He also wore a turban, grew long hair, and learned to wield a sword.
