Thugs of Hindostan is an upcoming 2018 Indian Hindi-language epic action-adventure film, written and directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, and produced by Aditya Chopra under his banner Yash Raj Films. The film stars Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Lloyd Owen in leading roles. Set in 1795, the film follows a band of Thugs led by Khudabaksh Azaad, who aspires to free Hindostan (the Indian subcontinent) from the rule of the expanding British East India Company. Alarmed, British commander John Clive sends a small-time Thug from Awadh, Firangi Mallah, to infiltrate and counter the threat.[3] The soundtrack was composed by Ajay-Atul with lyrics written by Amitabh Bhattacharya.

Produced on a budget of ₹300 crore (US$42 million), Thugs of Hindostan is the most expensive Bollywood film. Initially titled Thug, the film marked the first time Khan and Bachchan featured together as leads, and was the second collaboration between Khan, Acharya and Kaif, after Dhoom 3 (2013). Principal photography commenced on 5 June 2017 in Malta. In October, a dance sequence choreographed by Prabhu Deva and centred on Bachchan and others was filmed. The film was also shot in Thailand and Mehrangarh; it was put on a short hiatus after Bachchan experienced discomfort on set. Filming concluded in March 2018, the final schedule being completed in Rajasthan. Thugs of Hindostan is set to be released during the week of the Diwali[a] festival, on 8 November 2018.

The film tells a historical fiction story set in 1795, when the Indian subcontinent was known as Hindustan or Hindostan, where Indian bandits known as Thugs (from the Hindustani word "thug") posed a serious challenge to the expanding British East India Company which ruled over large parts of India.[4] The film follows a band of Thugs led by Khudabaksh Azaad (Amitabh Bachchan), who poses a grave threat to British East India Company as he aspires to free the country from the British. Alarmed, John Clive (Lloyd Owen), a British commander, sends Firangi Mallah (Aamir Khan), a small-time Thug from Awadh, to infiltrate and counter the threat
