Though there are a number of films that fans were looking forward to in 2018, such as Ranbir Kapoor’s Sanju, Salman Khan’s Race 3, Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone’s Padmaavat, and even Varun Dhawan and Anushka Sharma’s Sui Dhaaga (to be released on September 28th), but no movie was awaited as eagerly as the Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh film Thugs of Hindostan.

The makers of the film have had the pulse of fans racing in the last week after they dropped motion posters of the four main leads in the film and the main antagonist. And The trailer of Thugs of Hindostan was released yesterday. To mark the birth anniversary of iconic filmmaker Yash Chopra, Yash Raj Films decided to treat movie buffs with a sneak peek into the epic-adventure drama, starring Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Katrina Kaif. We now finally have a little sample size of what to expect from this epic saga.

The trailer takes us all the way back, to 1795, where the British are the ascendant power but giving them tough challenge are a band of thugs. The British people have their arms and firepower, while the Indians, led by Amitabh’s character Khudabaksh (who is reverentially called Azad by his followers) with Fatima as his trusted lieutenant. The trailer introduces us to all the important characters and their motives. The most noticeable is Aamir’s Firangi Mallah, who begins by two-timing both sides of the divide. But did he switch sides towards the end of the trailer? Guess we’ll find that out in the movie. Katrina is also seen making a fleeting appearance in the clip.
