Entertainment Desk (November 06, 2018): Post the trailer release, there have been many comparisons between Firangi and Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Carribean franchise.
Ever since the trailer of Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan-starrer Thugs Of Hindostan has come out, people have been drawing parallels between Aamir Khan’s character Firangi and Captain Jack Sparrow played by Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean.Aamir Khan said this has been his toughest role so far. Also starring Fatima Sana Shaikh.
“Intrinsically, they are both similar characters because dono badmaash hai (both are naughty). I personally feel and hope that when you see Firangi then you will forget Jack Sparrow. I don’t think Victor wrote it based on Jack Sparrow.” Aamir Khan said.
When Aamir was asked about playing such an unconventional character, the actor stated,
“It s my toughest character till date. It will be challenging for the audience as well because there will be times when they will not like me. I m hoping that people enjoy the character and take him for what he is. It s a very unusual hero. I have not seen a hero like that in Hindi films.”
Thugs of Hindostan is releasing on November 8.
