Dubai – October 31, 2018:   Yash Raj Films mega action-adventure Thugs of Hindostan has created a huge anticipation with its fantasy tale set in the high seas. Fatima Sana Shaikh hasdplayed a young wrestler who wowed audiences with her performance in her debut film Dangal. This time she plays the role of the warrior princess Zafira, a daredevil and an outstanding fighter. Her look has become quite a talking point but creating Zafira’s look proved to be a tall task for the films costume designers, Rushi and Manoshi.

“Zafira was one of the most challenging characters for us. We found fabrics that we thought best described Zafira and then we got her to stand like a mannequin and draped and draped fabric for five to six hours,” they state. “Even with the armor, we had to keep her frame in mind and design an armor which is flattering and yet made her look very strong. One of the very interesting things that she has as a part of her armor which nobody else has is the archery glove. It is designed so that she can do exceptional archery,” they add.

Playing Zafira required training and tons of practice in archery for Fatima. Sporting a heavy costume that includes armor and elaborate headgear added to the parts demands. “I could have never imagined that playing Zafira’s role would be difficult because of the hair. Sitting for three hours every day in the morning before the shoot is quite a pain,” says Fatima, laughing. “Kudos to them because they imagined me so completely different,” she concludes.

Yash Raj Films Thugs of Hindostan is the biggest visual spectacle hitting the big screen this Diwali. It boasts of a larger than life, never seen before action extravaganza and an incredible casting coup that brings together two of the biggest legends of Indian cinema, Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan on screen for the first time. It also stars Katrina Kaif. Thugs of Hindostan has been directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya. It is set to release on November 8, in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.

Advance tickets available across cinemas in the UAE.
