The day has finally arrived when Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan came together on screen for a film that is Thugs Of Hindostan!

The two might be enemies on screen but they seem to have evolved a sweet friendship while shooting for the movie.

 

That strong bond was visible at the trailer launch stage today where Big B pulled Aamir's leg again and again. Mind you, Senior Bachchan does that only when he's fond of someone.

Big B seems to have put forth a word to Aamir about being approached for Nagraj Manjule's Jhund, because of which he revealed, "Jhund is real-life story. It is about these kids from Dharavi who end up forming a football team for a cause. Aamir also insisted that I do the film, and you know that the movie is right when Aamir says so."

Nagraj Manjule is the same director who gave the Marathi blockbuster Sairat, which was adapted in Hindi by Karan Johar. Dhadak, the Hindi adaptation, introduced Sridevi's daughter Janhvi Kapoor and Shahid Kapoor's half-brother Ishaan Khatter to Bollywood.
