Actor Aamir Khan on Saturday denied rumours that his upcoming film “Thugs Of Hindostan” being inspired by the Johnny Depp starrer Hollywood flick “Pirates of Caribbean”.

At a media meet after participating in chat show ‘Dangal Dangal Baat Chali Hai’ with the whole cast of his mega blockbuster “Dangal”, Aamir, asked about the similarity, said: “The film is not inspired from any other film. It is an action adventure film but the story is not similar.

“There are some hundreds of action adventure films. There is ‘Pirates of Caribbean’, there is ‘Indiana Jones’ and many others. All these are action adventure films. So the genre of our film is action adventure but the story is different. Even my character in the film is not similar to any other character.”

“Thugs of Hindostan” is directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya and star Aamir, Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh in lead roles.

Aamir feels that Fatima who had portrayed the character of his daughter in “Dangal” is the right choice for this film as well.

“We are starting the shoot for ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ in June. Fatima is the heroine of the film. I am very happy as she is a very good artist, she suits the role.”

With “Dangal” doing great business in China, the actor said he feels that films like it do not have any language or culture barrier and have a global connect. “I suppose people have loved the film. These kind of films do not have any language or culture barriers. These are human stories which connect to everybody, irrespective of their language or region.

The press conference ended with Aamir singing song “Dhakad Hai” from “Dangal”.
