The film titled "Thugs of Hindoostan" will have the famous Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan in a significant role opposite him. This is a period film set in the 19th Century. The film is based on a fact of history when worshippers of the Goddess Kali resorted to strangulating travelers and then robbing them. The menace of thuggery was eradicated by the British during the 19th century. The cult is no longer in action as it was wiped out. This was because of the action of two men namely Captain William Sleeman, and Francis Curwen Smith a magistrate during the period 1830-35.
