In an interview to South China Morning Post, the actor said that his character in the film isn’t someone you could trust. “Thugs of Hindostan is a big action-adventure film. There’s no message in that. I am playing a character who cannot be trusted at all – [so it’s the] very opposite of Dangal … He’s a very slippery character. He has no scruples at all – for money he can sell his mother out. He’s like that,” he said about the role.

Aamir’s last film, Dangal was a massive hit in China and the most successful film ever made in India. It earned 1,700 in China itself.
