How excited are you about Thugs of Hindostan? Arguably, the biggest Bollywood release of the year, the movie stars Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh in the lead. Directed by Dhoom 3 fame Vijay Krishna Acharya, Thugs of Hindostan is a period action extravaganza, based on sea-faring pirates taking on the British East India Company. Amitabh Bachchan played the leader of thugs, Azad, while Fatima plays a feisty warrior in his group. Aamir Khan is Firangi, a double agent working for the British who joins Azad's forces to betray him, while Katrina is playing a seductress.

One of the best things we had to say about Thugs of Hindostan trailer, which came out a couple of weeks back, was the action scenes. In the new making video of the film, we get an insight into how the three main leads, Amitabh, Aamir and Fatima, train themselves rigorously for the action scenes, even injuring themselves in the process. Aamir and Fatima had an advantage for sure; they had trained a lot in wrestling for Dangal and some of that has surely helped here. Also, blink and you will miss, but you will also notice 'Shah Rukh Khan' in there. Or rather a poster of Dil Toh Pagal Hai, also featuring Madhuri Dixit and Karishma Kapur. Watch the video below -

Thugs of Hindostan will be Aamir's Diwali treat for fans this year, as the movie is all set to come out on November 8. The trailer was met with mixed responses. People praised the scope, the set-pieces and the action scenes, however, criticisms were drawn over its obvious Pirates of the Caribbean and Avatar influences.
