Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan are all set to star in a new film titled 'Thugs Of Hindostan' and the movie has been locked for a grand Diwali 2018 release. Aamir Khan took to Twitter and confirmed the news by saying,
"Finally, the moment I've been waiting for has come... to work with my icon Mr. Bachchan! Thanks Adi, Victor for 'Thugs Of Hindostan'. I'm too thrilled to be working with the actor I have admired all my life. Shoot starts early next year, and the release has been locked for Diwali 2018. Can't wait to get started! Fingers crossed."
Thugs Of Hindostan is reportedly based on the 1839 English novel, 'Confessions Of A Thug' by Philip Meadows Taylor. The novel is a tale of crime and retribution, set in 1832 India. The plot is based on the practices of thugs, who killed travellers for money and valuables.
