TOH: Fatima Sana Shaikh as Zafira an ancient warrior

19th September 2018

The makers of 'Thugs of Hindostan' previously gave away Amitabh Bachchan's character look from the film as 'Khudabaksh' and they now introduce another character from the film.

It is the 'Dangal' fame actress Fatima Sana Shaikh introduced as Zafira. She looks like a point blanc archer in this new look with an undercut eyebrow and an armoured warrior as the sharpest Thugs in front of us. She poses holding a bow and an arrow loaded upwards.

Aamir Khan introduced Fatima's motion poster and captioned it, "The warrior thug! Iskey nishane se bach ke raho!!!@fattysanashaikh as #Zafira @yrf | @TOHTheFilm | @SrBachchan | #KatrinaKaif."

Now, only two more thugs are left to be introduced, Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif and fans cannot wait. Click here to watch Zafira aka Fatima Sana Shaikh.

Zafira's description on the motion poster reads "Zafira is fiery and stunning. She is an extremely talented fighter and specialises in combat by bow and arrow. Zafira has perfect accuracy and she doesn’t miss a target, ever. Fatima Sana Shaikh as Zafira brings vigour and freshness to Thugs of Hindostan." 

Interestingly, this will be Fatima's second film with Aamir Khan. The film is based on a novel by Philip Meadows Taylor, 'Confessions of a Thug' that deals the lives and activities of a gang who murdered travellers for money and valuables.

'Thugs of Hindostan' has been shot across Mumbai, Malta, Morocco and Thailand. The movie will hit screens on November 8, 2018.
