When pictures from the sets of ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ were leaked online, Aamir Khan was apparently not too pleased and we completely understand his point. However, we wonder how will Aamir feel when he finds out that not only are his pictures being shared online, but some of them are even FAKE.    

When certain pictures started making rounds on the internet in the name of ‘first look’ of Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan from ‘Thugs of Hindostan’, people went crazy looking at the amazing transformation the actors underwent for the role. They look completely unrecognisable in these pictures, which got every single person talking about it. Initially, we too were duped into thinking that these pictures were actually real.

But, sorry to burst your bubble guys. This transformation was not a result of an incredible makeup artist, but some genius minds who used the internet in the best possible way.  

So, if you were busy sharing these photos, here’s a scoop for you. The pictures of Aamir Khan that you have been happily sharing all this while, are of a model Daljit Sean Singh.

And the guy you thought is Amitabh Bachchan, is a 68-year-old Afghan refugee in Pakistan named Shabuz. This picture was taken by a renowned photographer Steve McCurry.

I made this portrait of Shabuz, age 68, an Afghan refugee in Pakistan. Many Afghans use only one name.

Now you know why you can never trust the Internet and things that are shared online.

Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ also stars Katrina Kaif, and ‘Dangal’ girl Fatima Sana Shaikh. The movie is expected to release on November 7, 2018.
