The trailer of upcoming Bollywood film Thugs of Hindostan was released on Thursday and it was eerily similar to Pirates of the Caribbean.
The action-adventure film is about a thug whose gang poses a serious challenge to the British Raj during the 19th century. The movie is based on a novel called Confessions of a Thug by Philip Meadows Taylor but its cinematography and costumes look like they wouldn’t be out of place on the set of a Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
The film stars Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, Amitabh Bachchan and Fatima Sana Shaikh.
Watch the trailer here:
Khudabaksh, the commander of the thugs, is played by veteran Bachan.
