Amitabh Bachchan recently wrapped up shooting for the Malta schedule of Yash Raj Films’ highly anticipated action adventure, Thugs of Hindostan. A major chunk of the film was shot in Malta and according to sources, the team has shot several high octane action sequences in the country.
Apart from Aamir Khan, even Amitabh Bachchan will be seen performing several stunts in the film and during the filming of an action scene in Malta, the megastar reportedly suffered an injury. Bachchan had cracked one of his upper ribs and despite that, he continued shooting for the film. Amitabh Bachchan’s commitment towards work got the writer-director Vijay Krishna Acharya emotional. Recalling the incident, Vijay Krishna Acharya said,
“To me, having Mr Bachchan on set, for Thugs of Hindostan was an extra ordinary experience in itself. I have grown up idolising him and am an absolute fan of his Seventies films like Deewar. That he would have to deal with pain had me worried. I had offered to reschedule the last day’s shoot but he insisted on completing these portions and actually did a fine job! The kind of professional focus, commitment and sheer love for cinema he has is quite unmatched. I am overwhelmed, as is the unit that also worked at 100 percent to make this day’s work easier.”
Thugs of Hindostan has been partially shot on two massive ships put up on the coast of Malta, Europe. Two giants, Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan have teamed up for the first time and the same has created immense excitement among the audience.
Also starring Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh, Thugs of Hindostan is slated to release around Diwali 2018. Apart from Thugs of Hindostan, the other films to be produced by YRF include Hitchki, Tiger Zinda Hai, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar and Sui Dhaaga.
