Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh took to Twitter to unveil the first logo of Yash Raj Films’ magnum opus, Thugs Of Hindostan.
Here it is:
Doesn’t the logo remind you of a popular TV Show? We won’t blame you if you would instantly begin to draw comparisons with that of Game Of Thrones. We are beginning to wonder whether Thugs Of Hindostan is in any way inspired by the show.
An official statement from the production house read “This ambitious film that brings together Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan for the first time, will begin to shoot aboard two specially constructed, massive ships, that are currently docked by the Maltese seaside. Thugs of Hindostan will begin filming on these ships that have been built for over two months.”
Director Vijay Krishna Acharya, the man who helmed Dhoom 3, stated “The set of the film is in a high-security water zone, with restricted access. Both these ships have been built in the early eighteenth-century style when vessels would carry cannons and other weapons. An international crew has been hard at work creating these elaborate ships in Malta. Most of the portions filmed on board these ships involve high-octane action.”
Initially, the film was speculated to be inspired by Pirates Of The Carribean, which was soon refuted by Aamir by saying “There are some hundreds of action adventure films. There is Pirates of The Caribbean’, there is ‘Indiana Jones’ and many others. All these are action adventure films. So the genre of our film is action adventure but the story is different. Even my character in the film is not similar to any other character.”
Thugs Of Hindostan is slated for a Diwali 2018 release.
