Thugs of Hindostan is based on the pirates and the times when they were popular. For the first time, any Bollywood movie will witness the lethal combination of Big B and Mr Perfectionist. Initially, Hrithik Roshan was supposed to play the lead role, but after he had opted out of the movie, Aamir Khan replaced him. Considering the plot, it is estimated to be a mega-budget movie and will probably be the most expensive movies to be ever made under the Yash Raj banner.
