Thugs of Hindostan is one of the most anticipated films since it was announced, with an ensemble cast of Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Amitabh Bcahchan in the lead roles. Though as it seems, with a cast of this nature, both the heroines do not have an equal role, as suggested by Aamir Khan himself. As per reports in Mid day, the actor in a media interaction is telling the media that Fatima happens to be the lead actress in the film, and Katrina Kaif is only present for a few songs. The actor mentioned it during media interactions for his Zaira Wasim starrer Secret Superstar.

Katrina Kaif is reportedly displeased with these comments from the actor. But it comes as no surprise since the actor is very close to Fatima Sana Shaikh. The actor apparently very close to Fatima and is even giving her private coaching on the sets. Though rumours suggest that the actor, having worked with Fatima in Dangal talked the makers into hiring her, however, Kiran Rao refutes those claims suggesting the decision of casting her in Thugs of Hindostan was not her husband’s decision alone. It was a joint decision taken by Aditya Chopra, Vijay Krishna Acharya and Aamir.

Thugs of Hindostan is a periodic action-adventure. The Malta schedule of the film got over recently and Fatima posted a number of snaps on her Insta account. Amitabh Bachchan, who will also be a part of the film had his look leaked recently. The film will release next year on Diwali.
