- "Iskey nishane se bach ke raho," warns Aamir Khan
- Fatima's character Zafira is reportedly integral to the film's plot
- Thugs Of Hindostan releases on November 8
A day after Aamir Khan introduced us to the 'biggest Thug of all' Khudabaksh (Amitabh Bachchan), he announced Fatima Sana Shaikh's role in Thugs Of Hindostan. Fatima plays "warrior thug" Zafira, who appears to be a skilled archer and an excellent warrior on land as opposed to Khudabaksh, who is presented as the ruler of sea. "Iskey nishane se bach ke raho," wrote Aamir Khan in his introductory tweet for Fatima's character Zafira. In the motion poster, we come across Fatima dressed in a soldier-like costume ready to shoot an arrow at an unseen target. She appears fiery and determined to bring down her enemies and a burning fort-like structure in backdrop proves she is capable of doing that.
Take a look at the second motion poster of Thugs of Hindostan, presenting Fatima Sana Shaikh as Zafira:
