Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan recently revealed that he suffered from quite a few injuries while shooting the action sequence of his upcoming film 'Thugs of Hindostan', but still went with the flow in order to honour the wishes of director Vijay Krishna Acharya. Earlier, in March, Aamir Khan revealed that Amitabh Bachchan was suffering from a shoulder and back injury. On the trailer launch of the film, commenting on the injury, Amitabh Bachchan said "It is not my age to do all this but our director asked us to do so I did it. There is no part of the body that has not been broken and there is no doctor that I haven't met. There is not much improvement," He further added that shooting for the action films during the rain was another task.
He said "Had they made me wear normal clothes, it would have been easier but I was made to wear armour. They made me wear leather clothes and it was so heavy, it was about 30-40 kg, then they gave me a sword, turban and long hair. It took three hours for me to get ready. The most dangerous part was all the action sequences were shot in rains due to which the clothes got all the heavier," he added.
The film will be released in the IMAX format and is said to be a visual extravaganza. Acharya revealed that given how integral the visual effects were to the narrative, it was imperative that they be up to the mark. The director said that they have made an attempt at something that has never been done before. They faced a lot of challenges, right from the technical department to the logistical aspect.
The film stars Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Sanya Malhotra in pivotal roles. The film produced by Yash Raj Films is slated to release on November 8.
