It was previously reported that the tickets for Thugs of Hindostan have been priced at least 10 percent higher than those of Ranbir Kapoor-starrer Sanju, in order to milk the lucrative Diwali release window. Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, the film will see Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan share the screen space for the first time. Katrina Kaif, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Lloyd Owen are also part of the film. The plot is based on Philip Meadows Taylor’s 1839 novel Confessions of a Thug, which deals with a thug called Ameer Ali, whose gang of thugs posed a dangerous challenge to the British Empire in India during the early 1800s.
