Yashraj banner has partnered with Google for the promotion of ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ which is about to release on November 8 all across India. With a very interesting way of promoting the movie, Aamir Khan’s character from the film will navigate with you, wherever you go.

If you search your destination on Google maps and click on Directions, you get to see a image of Aamir Khan’s character “Firangi Mallah”.  After clicking it, a message will be displayed saying Go with Aamir Khan from Thugs of Hindostan. Navigate with the thug to celebrate the film.

Firangi’s catchy dialogues from the movie have also incorporated and are being loved by audiences.

Talking about the association, Neha Waikar, Product Manager, Google Maps said: “We are truly excited to bring a first-time India-specific entertainment experience to Google Maps in India. As people gear up for Diwali and to watch Thugs of Hindostan, we wanted to do our bit by making their driving journeys more fun and playful. We wish the movie every success,”
