Amitabh Bachchan, who is currently busy working on ‘Thugs of Hindostan’, recently shared his experience shooting for the film in Thailand.

“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, has 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. Despite the long hour drives and cold locations within the forests infested with volumes of insects and creepy crawlies and snakes and bats and you name it, it’s a pity I cannot strengthen the words pictorially, but when the time is right I shall … I think just the breathing in of the environment, the air, the green of the forests and those walks through hill and dale seem to have done it,” Bachchan posted on his blog,

The film, produced by Yash Raj Films, is based on Philip Meadows Taylor’s novel ‘Confessions of a Thug’ (1839). The cast includes Fatima Sana Shaikh, Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, Shashank Arora and Jackie Shroff. ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ is scheduled for a Diwali 2018 release.
