Yash Raj Films will begin filming for the first schedule of Thugs of Hindostan, their mega project starring Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh in Malta. Set off the coast of Southern Europe, and in close proximity to Tunisia and Libya, Malta is an island nation of Europe with relatively unexplored ocean side scenery.
This ambitious film that brings together Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan for the first time, will begin shoot aboard two specially constructed, massive ships, that are currently docked by the Maltese seaside. Thugs of Hindostan will begin filming on these ships that have been built for over two months.
Writer-director Vijay Krishna Acharya explains,
“The set of the film is in a high security water zone, with restricted access. Both these ships have been built in the early eighteenth century style, when vessels would carry cannons and other weapons. An international crew has been hard at work creating these elaborate ships in Malta. Most of the portions filmed on board these ships involve high octane action.”
With every detail, including its stellar star cast, Thugs of Hindostan has generated huge amounts of anticipation. Now with the promise of action on high seas and a dose of history, this mega project only builds more excitement. The film goes on floors on June 5th.
