Superstar Aamir Khan has been working in the Hindi film industry for over thirty years now and has shared the screen space with many celebrated actors, but in all these years, he never got an opportunity to work with Indian cinema thespian Amitabh Bachchan in any movie. Mr. Perfectionist always wanted to share the screen space with him, but his wish got fulfilled only recently when Yash Raj Films offered him Thugs Of Hindostan which also stars Big B in a pivotal role.
Recently, when Aamir Khan was asked about his experience of working with Amitabh Bachchan in the hotly anticipated movie Thugs Of Hindostan, he said it was a fanboy moment for him on the first day of the shoot. “I have been a huge, huge fan of Mr. Bachchan all along. The first day of rehearsals, when we were sitting and reading scenes together, was a fanboy moment for me.”
Khan went on to add that he was so much in awe of the megastar that he couldn’t even remember his lines properly. “I couldn’t speak properly. I couldn’t remember my lines. I was going all over the place. It has been a real joy for me that every day that I have sat next to him while we were shooting.”
Also starring Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh in significant roles, Thugs Of Hindostan is one of the biggest movies of 2018 by all means. It is being touted as one of the costliest films to ever come out of Yash Raj Films’ stable. The makers have spent like a sailor on its production to ensure that it turns out to be the biggest spectacle of 2018 upon its release on 7th November, on the auspicious occasion of Diwali.
Thugs Of Hindostan is produced by Aditya Chopra and directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya.
