He added, “I’m playing a character who cannot be trusted at all – [so it’s the] very opposite of Dangal … He’s a very slippery character. He has no scruples at all – for money he can sell his mother out. He’s like that.” In Thugs of Hindostan, Aamir Khan will be seen sporting a nose-ring for the first time. Earlier leaked pictures from the sets of TOH also vouch for Aamir’s description of the character. “But [the character] is a very entertaining guy. So it’s a very entertaining kind of a film. No message this time. Just have a good time.”
