TEN LATEST Aamir Khan UPDATES
Amitabh Bachchan transformed himself for his role of Khudabaksh in Thugs Of Hindostan!
Here’s a peek into everything that went into the making of the character
Shooting in Rajasthan was fun for the whole cast and crew !
Yash Raj Film’s mega action adventure Thugs of Hindostan boasts of breath-taking visuals and scale and was shot in several exotic global locations like Malta and Thailand. In Thailand, the team shot in the rainforests and the picturesque Bora Island but little did they know that it would turn out to be an adventure.
Amitabh Bachchan reveals, “I couldn’t understand Viktor’s philosophy of wanting to go to Thailand to shoot this sequence but he said we found a wonderful location and I want to explore that. I must admit that when I went there and saw the location it was absolutely awe-inspiring. It’s a massive cave, it’s like almost 20 to 30 stories high and it’s difficult to imagine how nature was able to create this. While we were shooting on two or three locations we had visitors without a pass on our location. Huge snakes would suddenly appear out of the rocks. Many times there were little pranks that everyone was playing by throwing rubber snakes.”
Viktor chose a cave on the island to be Khuda Baksh’s (played by Amitabh Bachchan) hideout. But reaching the set was cumbersome for Amitabh Bachchan who had to walk more than half an hour to reach the cave. So, just for him, the team built a palki!
“I had a lot of problems for the final walk. It had a climb, as it was mountainous. I have breathing problems. I tried a couple of times but it was not happening. They generously made a Palki for me, I was lifted and taken to the location looking very regal,” Amitabh Bachchan adds.
Aamir Khan, who plays Firangi Malla in the film, says he was wowed by the location in Thailand. He says, “When I walked in there for the first time, I was taken aback with the beauty of Poda Nui Island. It also felt like a real hideout. It had a massive cave with a huge ceiling and a river flowing through it. It’s a fantastic location.”
With visually grand, immersive experiences and jaw-dropping action sequences, Thugs of Hindostan, co-starring Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh, is set to light up Diwali across India. The film is set to release on November 8, a national holiday, in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
Yash Raj Films mega action adventure Thugs of Hindostan has wowed audiences worldwide with its larger than life, extravagant trailer and its lavish catchy songs, making it the biggest ever Hindi film release. This visual spectacle about an epic war and adventure on the high seas is releasing this Diwali. YRF is now releasing the teaser of its third song that is surely going to light up the internet. Titled Manzoor E Khuda, this patriotic dance number salutes the spirit of freedom and has Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh dancing on it.
Director Viktor (Vijay Krishna Acharya) says, “Manzoor E Khuda comes at a very crucial turning point in the film and it had to be a moving, powerful song. I think it’s lyrics, composition and vocals have created an overwhelming effect, making this salute to being free an incredibly special song. We love the song and we are certain that the audiences will love the spirit of freedom in it.”
As we all know, the Thugs take on the mighty British empire in the film. Thus, the significance of this song is immense. Chinni and Rekha Prakash, who are known for their unique choreography which always becomes a huge talking point, has directed it. Sukhwinder Singh, Sunidhi Chauhan, and Shreya Ghoshal – three of the most brilliant singers of our generation have sung this powerful song.
Composed by the talented duo Ajay-Atul, Manzoor E Khuda
Thugs of Hindostan brings two of the biggest icons of Hindi cinema Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan for the first time on big screen, making it a must watch the movie for Hindi film lovers worldwide. The film is set to treat audiences with the biggest jaw-dropping action sequences seen on screen to date. With its edge-of-the-seat thrills and a visually immersive experience, YRF’s out and out Diwali entertainer, Thugs of Hindostan, is set to release on November 8, a national holiday, in Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu.
Katrina Kaif will cast her spell on Firangi (Aamir Khan) with her sizzling looks and hot dance moves in Thugs of Hindostan’s new song Suraiyya. The film promises to present Katrina in her hottest desi avatar to date as she plays the role of an outrageously beautiful performer named Suraiyya. She is the most gorgeous girl in British India who makes every man go weak in their knees.
Prabhudheva, who always sets a benchmark in innovative choreography, has worked tirelessly to design this song that combines old Indian dance forms with intricate contemporary moves. The song will see Aamir, dressed as a British captain, having the guts to woo Katrina in front of a room filled with British officers. It is a peppy, humorous song which shows off their fun and teasing chemistry. The song has been composed by the renowned duo Ajay-Atul while Amitabh Bhattacharya has penned its lyrics. Shreya Ghoshal and Vishal Dadlani have sung this song that will surely become a chart-buster.
The director of Thugs of Hindostan, Vijay Krishna Acharya said, “Suraiyya is a song that gives a sneak peek into the flirtatious relationship between Firangi and Suraiyya. While she is Hindostan’s most famous performer of India, Firangi is an equally cunning man of the country whom Suraiyya doesn’t trust at all. They have a fun chemistry, they are an odd pair and they are both Thugs in their own right. Prabhudheva has done a sensational job in creating steps that only Katrina Kaif could pull off. I’m sure audiences will love it.”
