    The Work Begins

    Aamir Khan and Big B have kickstarted their work on this ambitious project and have started prepping together with writer- director Vijay Krishna Acharya. The duo were recently clicked during a script reading session.

    Aamir Reunites With His Dangal Co-Star

    While names of several Bollywood actresses did the rounds but when the makers finally announced Fatima Sana Shaikh bagging the role, it did leave a few section of people suprising considering she had earlier played Aamir's daughter in Dangal.

    But Fatima Had No Qualms

    She was quoted saying to Hindustan Times, "There have been so many instances of (female) actors playing mothers, daughters and lovers (with the same male actors). That's our job, and you keep playing different characters from different age groups. So, i don't have any issues."

    Katrina Joins The Gang

    Another wonderful surprise arrived when Aamir Khan announced Katrina Kaif joing the Thugs. The actor warmly welcomed his Dhoom co-star and wrote, "Finally we have our last thug..... Katrina ! Welcome aboard Kat :-)."

    Did The Makers Alter The Script?

    Rumours are rife that Aditya Chopra personally approached Kat for the film after several A-List heroines turned it down citing it wasn't meaty enough.

    However when Kat good-naturedly complained that Adi and Victor (Acharya) had not given her much to do the last time they signed her opposite Aamir Khan in Dhoom 3. Adi assured her the role would be mended.

    A Love Triangle Between Aamir, Fatima And Katrina?

    If reports are to be believed then Fatima who is a part of Aamir's gang of thugs falls for him. On the other hand, Aamir is in love with Kat's character.

    It's Action Time For Fatima

    One hears that Fatima would be taking sword-fighting lessons to prep up for her role. The film's director was quoted as saying, "Fatima will learn how to be skillful sword-fighter in the film as her role is action oriented."
