"Thugs of Hindostan" Set to Debut in China

Bollywood actor Aamir Khan is set to dazzle his Chinese fans as his latest movie "Thugs of Hindostan" is scheduled for release in China on December 28.
Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya and produced by Yash Raj Films, it centers in the story of the rogue Firangi and the relationship between the English colonists and a group of Indian bandits. Firangi is said to be Khan's most interesting character to date because he is neither honest nor evil and may present a mysterious image to the viewers.
Khan has already promoted the film in China before its scheduled release, travelling across eight major cities in China, including Guangzhou, Xi'an, Nanjing, Wuhan, Shanghai, Sanya, Chengdu and Beijing.
The film has already grossed about $40 million in the box office, but has received critical and negative reviews from critics.
However, it is said that the Chinese fans will enjoy the release of the film because it was edited by Khan himself. Several slow-motion action scenes and Indian slangs will be removed from the film, while additional scenes to explain background stories will be added. It is also expected to be more easier to understand and more intense.
Several song and dance numbers will also be retained.
Khan is a very popular actor in China with some of his previous works receiving high praise from his Chinese fans. This year is also special for the actor as it is his 30th year in the industry.
