Fatima Sana Shaikh joins Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan in Thugs Of Hindostan. The hunt finally ends!

Thugs Of Hindostan was being delayed because no actress was ready to work in the film which features Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan

The much awaited Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan starrer film, Thugs Of Hindostan has finally got a release date. The YRF entertainer is being directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, the writer and director of Dhoom series. The film will be going on floors from June 1 and is slated to hit the screens on Diwali 2018.

Apart from Aamir and Bachchan, the film will also feature Dangal fame, Fatima Sana Sheikh. The actress who played the character of Geeta Phogat in the film reportedly has not much to do in the film. Thugs Of Hindostan is mainly a conflict drama between the two male leads. And that’s probably the reason why the project got delayed so much. YRF also approached actresses like Alia Bhatt and Vaani Kapoor to essay the role of female lead in the film but things couldn’t work out considering there’s not enough meat in the character of the actress.

Earlier, even actor Hrithik Roshan was also approached for the film but when he reportedly told the director about the female role not being enough substantiate, the director changed the actor instead.
