Kamal Haasan launches Tamil trailer of THUGS OF HINDOSTAN
Tamil superstar Kamal Haasan on Thursday launched the Tamil trailer of upcoming Indian film THUGS OF HINDOSTAN.
The film, which was originally shot in Hindi, has been dubbed in two other languages, Tamil and Telegu.
The film stars senior actors- Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif- along with young Fatima Sana Shaikh.
The Hindi trailer was also launched on Thursday by production and distribution company Yash Raj Films on the occasion 86th birth anniversary of late director-producer Yash Chopra.
All the actors were present at the trailer launch event in Mumbai.
The trailer, which takes audience back to the days of British Raj in India, promises a plot with conflicts between the East India Company and the Indians who wanted to free their country from Britain.
Bachchan, who is playing the role of Khudabaksh, will be seen in the trailer fighting for India's freedom. Aamir, playing the character of Firangi, has been portrayed as seemingly loyal to Lord John Clive, who was the commander of the company.
The character of Lord Clive, who is the villain in the film, has been portrayed by British actor Lloyd Owen.
The over three-minute trailer ends with a direct conflict between Khudabaksh and Firangi, played by Bachchan and Aamir respectively.
Katrina, who is Suraiyaa in the film, could be seen in a glamarous avatar with her dancing skills. A few close scenes between Katrina and Aamir, who are working together for the third time in any project after DHOOM 3, are tough to ignore.
Fatima's character has been named as Zafira.
THUGS OF HINDOSTAN is the first film where Bachchan and Aamir are sharing screen space. Aamir had earlier worked with Fatima in DANGAL, which released in 2016.
Vijay Krishna Acharya directorial THUGS OF HINDOSTAN is set to release on Nov 8, on the occasion of festival Diwali.
