All the rumours turned out to be true as Katrina Kaif finally came on board for Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan’s upcoming YRF venture, Thugs Of Hindostan. While fans of both Katrina and Aamir are extremely happy that the two are re-uniting on the big screen after Dhoom:3, Salman Khan too is super ecstatic that Katrina is a part of this much-talked-about project. So excited is Salman, that he decided to do some word play, and promote three major films in just one tweet. “I’m such a big Tubelight that I just got to know that Tiger’s tigress is a Thug,” Salman tweeted, along with a really beautiful photo of Katrina. It’s not difficult to figure out that Salman is talking about Tiger Zinda Hai, which stars Katrina with him, Tubelight and Thugs Of Hindostan.
This tweet doesn’t really come as a surprise as it was Salman, who recommended Katrina’s name for Thugs Of Hindostan. “Salman wants Katrina to play the heroine opposite Aamir Khan in Thugs of Hindostan and hence, he gave her name as a suggestion to the production house. He has already put in a word as he feels that Thugs will be the perfect film for Katrina to be in after Tiger Zinda Hai. Both the films will obviously give a boost to her career and that’s what the actor wants. However, everything now lies in the hands of Aditya Chopra and Aamir Khan, who will decide on which actress will be a part of the movie,” a source was quoted by BollywoodLife.
Even Aamir is quite happy to work again with Katrina as the actor took to Twitter and said, “Finally we have our last thug….. Katrina ! Welcome aboard Kat :-).”
Not only Katrina, even Fatima Sana Shaikh, who was last seen with Aamir in Dangal also came on-board for Thugs Of Hindostan quite recently. In an official press release, director Vijay Krishna Acharya confirmed the news and said, “The role of the girl is pivotal to the film so it was crucial for us to find the perfect fit. Through a rigorous round of auditions and action workshops, we found in Fatima a truly dedicated actor and a gifted performer of action. We are very happy to have found the perfect girl for our film.”
