So it is confirmed that Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan will share big screen together in Yash Raj Films next which is tentatively titled 'Thug.'
News is confirmed by none other than Amitabh Bachchan himself. Film will be directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya of Dhoom 3 fame. Expect an official announcement soon from YRF about the release dates and star cast. Reportedly Hrithik Roshan was offered the film and he rejected it.
To a recent interview Amitabh Bachchan has himself confirmed that Aamir is very much a part of the film and he is excited to share screen space with him. He said, “It’s a great honour and privilege to be working with Aamir and to be working with Yash Raj again and also to work with Victor, I just look forward to that moment” and went on to reveal that Thug may not be the final title of the film.
Big B, also further said, “I don’t know if I can talk much about the film at this moment. I haven’t been given permission. All I can say is that it is a very exciting subject.”
This is great as we will see two megastars sharing screen space for first time. Also, film is coming from YRF and no doubt it will be big. Reports suggest Thug is gunning for Christmas 2017 release.
