‘Thugs of Hindostan’ Imitates ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’?
The first official trailer of upcoming Bollywood film Thugs of Hindostan was released earlier today. The Yash Raj Films movie boasts a star cast with Amitabh Bachchan leading as a pirate named Khudabaksh, Amir Khan as Firangi, Katrina Kaif as Suraiyya and Fatima Sana Shaikh as the daredevil Zafira.
However, after the trailer’s release people could’t help but notice the similarities with Hollywood blockbuster franchise Pirates of the Caribbean especially with how the characters are portrayed. Twitter had a field day with it and trolled the actors by sharing their opinions.

The same theme! Jack being loyal to none ends up being saviour of all! AB looks Barbossa, Kat is Kiera and that Dangal wali may have replaced Will Turner. ! Others are fine but how can one even dare to get compared with Johnny as Jack Sparrow.. comparison with him is your loss!
