The makers of the upcoming Bollywood film 'Thugs of Hindostan' sure know how to keep the audience engaged and involved with their film. The makers have been releasing making videos of the film in a series of chapters. Recently, they unveiled the sixth video, where they revealed that while shooting in Thailand, there were a number of uninvited visitors on the sets. The cast revealed that there were too many bats and snakes that were found on the sets which made them alert and cautious while filming.
In the video, the director Vijay Krishna Acharya begins by saying that he had visited Thailand and had found the perfect location to shoot a sequence of the film. Amitabh Bachchan in the video can be heard saying that he was not sure why the director wanted to shoot in Thailand just for one sequence, but later admits that once he saw the location it was absolutely amazing. Even Aamir Khan adds that he was taken aback when he first saw the set in Thailand. The production designer quipped that the river had to banks and they had to build a bridge in order to commute.
Mr. Bachchan reveals that while they were shooting, there were two-three occasions where they had visitors without a pass referring to the snakes and the bats that would suddenly appear on the sets. The other cast members said that they all got over their fear of snakes after witnessing so many on the sets and even joked around with each other by throwing rubber snakes at one another.
The distance from the vanity vans or the cars to the location was about 35 minutes trek and Amitabh Bachchan being a asthma patient was carried in a 'palki' by the crew. Actress Ila Arun too says that she also was carried on a palki and taken to the location.
The other cast members recalled Thailand as their most memorable and fun shoot. They got to know each other a lot better there than they had in the last 6 months of shooting. All in all, the location is a visual delight.
