Reports of whether Katrina Kaif would be a part of Thugs of Hindostan or not, were put to rest when actor Aamir Khan tweeted [on May 11] that she is finally on-board. And now, sources have confirmed that the 33-year-old will play the role of a dancer in the film, starring Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. After grooving to crazy beats in Chikni Chameli (Agneepath; 2011) and Kamli (Dhoom 3; 2013), Katrina fans would definitely be in for a treat with her new avatar in the film.

According to a report in DNA, Katrina will have a special dance number in the film that is scheduled to go on floors from June 1. This would be Katrina’s second film with actor Aamir Khan, after the two shared screen space in the 2013 film  Dhoom 3. Slated to release on Diwali this year, the film also stars Fatima Sana Shaikh, who played the role of Aamir’s daughter in his film Dangal (2016).

Earlier, there were reports that Katrina will be playing a British girl in the film, however the makers had refuted these as rumours. “Katrina is playing an out and out Indian role and is an integral part of the film. Since this is a period film, it will be her first Indian classical role,” had quoted a source as saying.
