Hrithik Roshan’s next project titled Thug, is based on the novel Confessions Of a Thug by Philip Meadows Taylor. The novel is based on the real life thug Syeed Amir Ali and his father. Set in British India, the film shows the life of a gang of professional robbers and murderers, who targeted travellers.
Now it is in news that Amitabh Bachachan will be playing the pivotal role of Hrithik’s father in the film. Earlier it was also touted that Thug would be on the lines of Pirates Of The Caribbean, and Hrithik would play the part of Jack Sparrow (played by Johnny Depp), however, later this rumour was squashed saying the film has a pre – independent india setting to it.
This will be the second time that AB senior would play Hrithik’s father.
