He is aiming at wooing and wowing audience once again and we are positive that he will.

Thugs Of Hindostan: Aamir Khan last regaled us on the big screen in Dangal in 2016 and then in an extended guest appearance in Secret Superstar in 2017. However, in both the films he took a step back and let the female leads in the film shine under the arc lights. In Thugs Of Hindostan, we hear he is all set to wow us with yet another physical transformation. We already know how invested Aamir is in the characters he plays, and with the look set to impress audience, we can just expect a great movie experience in Diwali 2018 when the film hits screens on 7 November. Not only him, Amitabh Bachchan too is set to play a never seen before character in thus one. ALSO READ: Ajay Devgn Set To Co-produce Total Dhamaal
