Vijay Krishna Acharya’s next film with an intriguing title is set to cast three Bollywood heavyweights in major roles. Actor Jackie Shroff has been already approached for Amitabh Bachchan-Aamir Khan starrer “Thugs of Hindostan”.
“Besides the main star cast, the film will also have a strong supporting cast. He (Jackie) has been approached for the film. He has liked the role and given a positive feedback to the team. But he is yet to sign on the dotted line,” sources said.
The 59-year-old “Ram Lakhan” star will be seen in a major role in the movie.
Jackie and Bachchan earlier worked in Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s “Eklavya”, while the actor teamed up with Aamir on “Dhoom 3”, which was directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya who also direct “Thugs of Hindostan”.
This film will be something to cheer for as Big B and Aamir are sharing screen space for the first time in the film. “If all goes as planned he (Jackie) will be seen in opening part of the film. Like how it was in ‘Dhoom 3’,” sources said.
The makers are working out the dates and other things with Jackie.
“Thugs of Hindostan” will be produced by Aditya Chopra’s Yash Raj Films (YRF).
Habitually Bollywood films think of the main actress after selecting the male lead and “Thugs of Hindostan” is no exception. The actress obviously has to be on par with superstar status and match the fame and charisma of the lead triumvirate.
The film is set to release in Diwali 2018. – CINEWS
