The makers of the upcoming film, ‘Thugs of Hindostan’, are leaving no stones unturned to attract the attention of the audience as they are releasing new motion posters almost every day. They started the trend right after the logo of the film was released.

Two characters from the much-anticipated war-drama film have already been revealed. First is the commander of Thugs, ‘Khudabaksh’, who is portrayed by Amitabh Bachchan and a fiery warrior, played by Fatima Sana Sheikh.

On Thursday, the makers of the film revealed the antagonist, ‘John Clive’, played by British actor Lloyd Owen. Yash Raj Films shared the motion poster and tweeted, “Cruel and merciless. Presenting #JohnClive.”


The motion poster showcases British actor Lloyd Owen as John Clive with an army in the backdrop ready to strike.

Actor Aamir Khan, who also plays a vital role in the film, shared the new motion poster introducing the character of Clive.

The actor tweeted, “John Clive..not to be confused with Robert you can see he is one of the most gentle and kind souls. Loving, caring non violent, and generous. My idol!


‘Thugs of Hindostan’ is based on Philip Meadows Taylor’s 1839 novel, ‘Confessions of a Thug’.

Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, the film also stars Katrina Kaif and Ronit Roy and is slated to release on November 8.
