We were the first one to report that Katrina Kaif is all set to join the cast of Thugs of Hindostan alongside Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan. A few days later, the producer of the film, Yash Raj Films released an official statement talking about the same.
They stated, “Yash Raj Films’ star-studded mega project Thugs of Hindostan has its final ‘thug’ onboard. Katrina Kaif joins the other ‘thugs’ Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan and Fatima Sana Shaikh in this larger than life, grand cinematic experience. A much-awaited film, Kaif’s addition to this film’s star cast only adds to the massive anticipation that it has already built.”
Now, as per a leading daily, the script of the film is being altered for Katrina. Talking about it, the source stated to the daily, “She met Adi in Victor’s (as Vijay Krishna Acharya is fondly known) presence and good-naturedly complained that the two had not given her much to do the last time they signed her opposite Aamir Khan in Dhoom:3. Aditya Chopra assured her the role would be amended.”
It is also reported that Adi personally told Kat to sign the film after many A-list actresses turned down the offer. And another source told the daily, “The heroine’s role was sketchy, to begin with. It has now been fleshed out for Katrina’s sake.”
Dangal actress Fatima Sana Shaikh will also be seen in TOH. The film is set to go on floors from June 1, 2017, and is slated for a 2018 Diwali weekend release.
