The film, Thug was anticipated as the most expensive Bollywood film ever. The movie produced by YRF will have international VFX and action will be on Hollywood level.
Initially, the project was offered to Hrithik Roshan. However, the actor did not sign the film and asked the director Vijay Krishna Acharya to make few changes in the script. A few months back Vijay again went to Hrithik with the changed script but it did not impress the actor either. At that time YRF decided to rope some other actor.
Victor has worked with Aamir Khan in Dhoom 3 and shares a good relation with him. When he showed the script to Aamir, he loved it at once and agreed to do the film. But there is a twist.
As per the reports, Aamir Khan has taken the matters into his control. Now the script will change a little and it will not be titled Thug anymore. As Aamir is known as Mr. Perfectionist, YRF and Victor has agreed to Aamir Khan's terms and conditions. It was also expected to feature Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone. Big B has confirmed that he is part of the film still. It will be interesting to see if DP is also retained in the film. Aamir and Deepika have not shared screen space yet.
The untitled film will go on floors next year as Aamir has to change his looks and he also does not work on two films at a time. So first he will wait for the Dangal release and then will move on to next project. It is expected to arrive on Christmas 2018.
