Aamir Khan, who plays Firangi Mallah in the film has undergone a major transformation to justify the character. Amitabh Bachchan as Khudabaksh looks like a warrior who is also a farmer, Fatima as Zafira comes across as the daredevil while Katrina as Suraiyya is the ultimate siren. The film also stars English actor Lloyd Owen essaying a significant role.
Reportedly set in the backdrop of India under the British rule in the 19th century, Thugs of Hindostan is inspired by Philip Meadows Taylor’s 1839 novel Confessions of a Thug. It revolves around the life of a thug and his gang who challenge the British Empire in the country.
