The Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan starrer upcoming action movie, Thugs of Hindostan is garnering the much needed-attention. The action-adventure movie is based on Philip Meadows Taylor’s ‘Confessions of a Thug’, which revolved around the ‘Thugee’ cult in the British India in the 18th century. The book revolved around the practice of the ‘Thugs’, who murdered travelers for money.

The biggest reason why fans are even more excited for the movie is none other than the “Big B” himself. Amitabh Bachchan’s relationship with social networking sites has kept all his fans updated about the movie’s shoot.

Amitabh Bachchan in one of his tweets called the shoot “rough and tough”.

The action also stars the Jagga Jasoos actor Katrina Kaif and the Dangal fame Fatima Sana Sheikh. The movie’s shoot commenced in June 2017 in Malta.

The classic shows a completely different era. The movie’s grandeur has been the unique selling point of it. The biggest highlight so far of this Yashraj production has been the cast’s ensemble, and with a star cast full of perfectionists especially the Dangal Guru, there would be no stone left unturned. Aamir Khan has pierced his nose and the upper portion of his ears. In a picture released during the movie’s making, Aamir was seen wearing an authentic Indian circular nose pin and broad rings in his ears.

A photograph of Fatima Sana Shaikh in her black colored costume of the film was taking rounds of the internet recently. Shaikh will be playing a role of the warrior. The actress was seen holding a sword.

Coming to the gorgeous Katrina Kaif’s role in the film, Kaif would be playing a desi warrior princess in the movie. Her character is powerful. There would be a bunch of actions scenes of Katrina in the movie, including sword fighting scenes. Like her male counterpart Aamir Khan, the 33-year-old would also be wearing a nose-ring.

The Vijay Krishna Acharya action-adventure directorial is set to hit the screens in Diwali next year.

Tokyo Olympics 2020 Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar enter semi finals.

Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar (57kg) and Deepak Punia (86kg) enjoyed fruitful outings at the Tokyo Olympic Games as they secured semifinal berths in their respective weight categories at the Makuhari Messe on Wednesday.

On the opening day of the wrestling competition, Ravi Kumar defeated Bulgaria's Georgi Vangelov 14-4 on technical superiority to reach the last-four in the men's 57kg category, while compatriot Deepak Punia overcame China's Zushen Lin 6-3 on points to advance to the semifinals.

Ravi Kumar will take on Nurislam Sanayev of Kazakhstan in the last-four, while Punia will be up against David Morris Taylor of the USA.

Earlier, Ravi Kumar had won his opening-round bout by technical superiority against Colombia's Oscar Tigreros to secure a quarterfinal spot. Competing in the Round-of-16 bout against the Colombian wrestler, the 23-year-old Ravi Kumar, who is making his Olympic debut, showed no nerves as he dominated the bout to win by technical superiority (13-2).

Ravi Kumar landed attack after attack and went 13-2 up, winning the bout by technical superiority with minutes to spare. In wrestling, building up a 10-point lead over the opponent results in a victory by technical superiority.

India's 86kg freestyle wrestler Deepak Punia showed no signs of the niggle that had forced him to pull out of the Poland Open Ranking Series in Warsaw in June, as he defeated Nigeria's Ekerekeme Agiomor on technical superiority to secure a quarterfinal berth.

He got his Olympic campaign to a fine start as he was in control from the start of the bout and hardly ever allowed his Nigerian opponent any room to maneuver his moves, finally winning with a 12-1 on technical superiority.

Punia, who had also suffered an elbow injury just before the Games, was slow at the start but came into his own as the bout progressed, inflicting takedowns at regular intervals to earn points.

The Indian wrestler eased into a 4-1 lead at the break and extended his lead comfortably in the second period.

Punia, the silver medallist from the 2019 world wrestling championships, then set up a clash with China's Lin Zushen in the quarterfinals and defeated him 6-3.
