Yash Raj Films much awaited Thugs Of Hindostan is all set to release this Diwali. The movie will see Bollywood’s biggest stars come together. The highly anticipated film stars Amir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Katrina Kaif among others. But the superstar-studded cast isn’t just the big deal about the film. Imax announced on Friday that this film will be digitally re-mastered in the immersive Imax format and released in Imax theatres.
