Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has wrapped up the harsh schedule for his upcoming film Thugs of Hindostan in Thailand.
Big B describes the shoot as tough but energising. “Strangely though, the so-called harsh schedule just completed in the wilds and hills and chills of mountainous Thailand of disciplined, gentle and smiling Thai have not had any after effects of discomfort or malaise. It’s been tough, the shoot for Thugs of Hindostan, but in a funny way very energising,” Amitabh wrote on his blog.
The film is based on Philip Meadows Taylor’s 1839 novel Confessions of a Thug which is about a gang of Thugs who posed a serious challenge to the British Empire in India during the early 19th century.
The director of the film, Vijay is also all enthusiastic and hopeful about the project. In a report of India.com he had earlier discussed the looks of both the leading men Aamir and Amitabh in the film. He said, “I always like to give and present my actors in a different look. Both (Aamir and Bachchan) will have a different look. But there is no drastic change in the look. I have worked with Aamir on Dhoom 3 and he has a great fitness regime. While Mr. Bachchan looks good with anything.”
Thugs of Hindostan, which also stars Aamir Khan, Fatima Sana Shaikh, and Katrina Kaif and will release during Diwali 2018. The Yash Raj Films production is being helmed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, who directed Katrina and Aamir in Dhoom 3.
Amitabh, 75, also has another film in his kitty 102 Not Out, which also stars veteran star Rishi Kapoor. The actors will be starring together after two decades. Thugs Of Hindostan is Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan’s first film together.
