Aamir Khan to replace Hrithik Roshan in Thug?

The ‘Thug’ life is suiting none it seems…

Yash Raj Films’ Thug is seriously becoming yet another Shuddhhi. Every other day a new actor either gets in or out. It was first heard that Hrithik Roshan will be part of this action adventure which will have some insane stunts. Then there were reports that the actor has walked out of the film because he wanted to see how Mohenjo Daro fare at the box office and then decide as he wasn’t convinced. Then it was Deepika Padukone’s turn to get in and out of the film in a jiffy. Later, the news was that Amitabh Bachchan too will be part of it while Hrithik stays. Now rumours are rife that the Kaabil actor will soon get replaced and Aamir Khan‘s name is doing the rounds next.

Thug will be helmed by Dhoom 3 director Vijay Krishna Acharya and thus it isn’t surprising to see Aamir’s name coming up here. We are sure they must have shared a great bond while shooting the film. It is expected to go on the floors next year but the film’s yet to get a lead that won’t suddenly decide to bolt. That’s because only today yet another actor left the project. A daily reported that AB has opted out of the film as well since it is getting pushed. He is committed to a lot of films now and thus can’t be part of this film.

We wonder what will happen to this film. It has all the trappings of a good entertainer but finalising a lead is becoming an uphill task here. The film apparently got postponed because Hrithik was kicked about Kaabil more than Thug and thus wanted to do the Sanjay Gupta film first. So from January, it shifted to April but now it’s July and the film is still waiting for a permanent lead to walk in.
