After setting our pulse racing with the terrific motion poster of the logo, YRF has now unveiled the first-look of Amitabh Bachchan from Thugs of Hindostan in keeping with its marketing strategy of releasing the individual first looks of the films’ four main actors – Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, and Fatima Sana Shaikh – in the lead up to the film’s grand first look, which will be launched on the legendary Yash Chopraji’s birthday on 27th September 2018.
The iconic Big B plays Khudabkash in the film, and the motion poster of his first look reveals him to be a commander of a huge pirate ship, set against the backdrop of a huge war brewing on the high seas. Thugs of Hindostan promises to be the first Hindi film presented on such a lavish scale, with massive VFX and war sequences mounted on the sprawling ocean, and Bachchan Sr. aka Khudabaksh appears to be the master of the ocean, ready to attack. Check it out below:
