Quite a few names popped up for Thugs Of Hindostan, from Alia Bhatt to Parineeti Chopra, and now it is reported that Shraddha Kapoor has bagged the role of the lead actress in TOH and would be paired alongside Mr. Perfectionist, Aamir Khan.
However, both Aamir Khan and Shraddha Kapoor have chosen to remain mum about the casting and have not revealed any information regarding the development. Also, a spokesperson from Yash Raj Films denied that Shraddha Kapoor has been roped in for the film by saying, "Shraddha has not signed the film."
Thugs Of Hindostan is a period love story set in India during 1832 where a gang of thugs ruthlessly murdered people for money and the gang had scared the living hell out of the common people. The film is an adaptation of Philip Meadows Taylor's novel 'Confessions Of A Thug'.
If Shraddha Kapoor's involvement in the film is indeed true, then she would play Aamir Khan's love interest, romantic interest and later, wife in the film. The film also stars Amitabh Bachchan in the lead role and is scheduled to be released in 2018.
