Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan, who plays the role of the 'flamboyant, deceptive, slippery, smooth-talking thug Firangi in 'Thugs of Hindostan' says that playing the role was fun.
Talking about his character in the film, which hits the cinema screens on Diwali, Aamir said,''when I heard the script for the first time, I loved the character of Firangi. He's a strange guy because he is not a very reliable person at all. He is someone who is constantly lying and you don't know when he is telling the truth. Fortunately, I don't know anyone like Firangi in real life! "
Talking about Aamir's character, his co star Fatima Sana Sheikh said,''Ekdum matlabi hai. In real life agar mein kissi Firangi ko jaanti, toh uss se das foot door rahoongi!(He is a real self centred person. In real life if I know such a person , I will stay at a distance from him) "
Talking about the character, Amitabh Bachchan said,''He has a dual personality, he's great fun, he's smart, he's intelligent and he has a difficult job of balancing two great powers (the Thugs and the British East Indian Company)."
Director Vijay Krishna Acharya (Viktor) too described Firangi hilariously. , "He's not a character you would want in your life! He is just so unreliable,''the Big b said.
