Acting with Amitabh is a dream come true: Aamir
Yash Raj Films’ Thugs of Hindostan brings the two actors together on screen for the first time
Aamir Khan says the first scenes of the "very exciting" Thugs of Hindostan are action sequences for which preparations are going on in Malta, a European island nation in the Mediterranean. The Yash Raj Films’ project, which promises to have a lot of action sequences on sea with a fair dose of history, brings Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir together on screen for the first time. "I am excited to work with Amitabh Bachchan. It is a dream come true. I’ve always been a huge fan of his," says Aamir.
The film, which also stars Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh, will go on floors on June 5. The shooting will begin aboard two massive specially-constructed ships — built over two months — that are currently docked in a Maltese sea port. Writer-director Vijay Krishna Acharya says, "Both ships have been built in the early 18th century style, when vessels carried cannons and other weapons. An international crew has created the sets. Most portions to be filmed on these ships involve high-octane action."
