Aamir Khan was asked about his character Firangi in Thugs of Hindostan being compared to Pirates of the Caribbean franchise’s Jack Sparrow (played by Johhny Depp). The actor said that he hopes Firangi will make everybody forget Jack Sparrow.

Aamir Khan brings a different action-adventure genre to Bollywood with his upcoming release, Thugs of Hindostan. The Vijay Krishna Acharya directorial also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh in pivotal roles. In the movie, Aamir will be seen as playing the rebel Firangi Mallah who will be up against Khudabaksh Azaad (Big B). The trailer, as well as the songs, have been getting a thunderous response and the audience can’t wait to watch the Diwali spectacle.

When we asked Aamir about playing such an unconventional character, the actor stated, “It’s my toughest character till date. It will be challenging for the audience as well because there will be times when they will not like me. I’m hoping that people enjoy the character and take him for what he is. It’s a very unusual hero. I have not seen a hero like that in Hindi films.” Post the trailer release, there have been many comparisons between Firangi and Jack Sparrow (played by Johhny Depp) in the Pirates of the Carribean franchise.

On being quizzed about being compared to Jack Sparrow, Aamir commented, “Intrinsically, they are both similar characters because dono badmaash hai (both are naughty). I personally feel and hope that when you see Firangi then you will forget Jack Sparrow. I don’t think Victor wrote it based on Jack Sparrow.”
