The fi lm stars Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Ronit Roy, and Lloyd Owen. Set during the period of Company rule in India, the film follows a small-time thug from Awadh, Firangi Mallah, who is sent by an East India Company official to infiltrate and counter a band of thugs. Produced at an estimated budget of ?300 crore (equivalent to ?358 crore or US$47 million in 2020), Thugs of Hindostan is one of the most expensive Bollywood films. Initially titled Thug, the film marked the first time Khan and Bachchan featured together as leads, and was the second collaboration between Khan, Acharya and Kaif, after Dhoom 3 (2013), and between Khan and Shaikh after the latter's debut in Khan-produced Dangal. Principal photography commenced on 5 June 2017 in Malta; the film was also shot in Thailand and Mehrangarh. It was put on a short hiatus after Bachchan was injured on set. Filming concluded in March 2018, the final schedule being completed in Rajasthan. The soundtrack was composed by Ajay-Atul, with lyrics written by Amitabh Bhattacharya, while John Stewart Eduri composed the background score. Thugs of Hindostan was released in IMAX, 4DX and conventional theaters during the week of the Diwali festival, on 8 November 2018. It received generally negative reviews from critics and audiences, with praise towards the performances of Bachchan and Khan, visual effects and action sequences but received criticism towards Acharya's direction, screenplay, script and performances of the supporting cast. The film recorded the highest first-day collection and highest two-day collection for any Hindi film in India, and the fourth biggest opening weekend in India, but immediately experienced a significant drop in the second day itself. The film released in China on 28 December 2018, where a special edition edited by Aamir Khan was released with a shorter run-time than the original version.
