Aamir approached his school friend for the nose pin, however, he had neither the pin nor its picture. Therefore, the actor designed his own nose pin for the film which is an exact replica of the one his friend had.
A source close to the actor shared,
Aamir Sir has an eye for minute details. Not only does he have a vision for his characters, but he also takes every bit of efforts to get the finer details right. It is a lesser known fact, but he observes his near and dear ones very closely and often draws inspiration from them for his onscreen characters. To play a Thug, he imprinted the design of the nose pin his school friend wore decades ago.
It is a known fact that Aamir leaves no stone unturned to ace any character that he chooses. Known to change his looks for his films, slipping into the character of a thug, the Superstar went a step ahead to perfect his look adding a connection straight from Sindh. Earlier the actor had borrowed Soorma from his mother to compliment his Thug look.
Thugs of Hindostan releases this Diwali and Aamir has got the masses excited with an avatar which is poles apart from his look in his last film, Secret Superstar.
