Thugs Of Hindostan has been making headlines ever since it was announced. After all, it stars Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan together for the first time. To add to that cast is Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh, what more could the audience ask for? The film will be hitting the screens this Diwali and just before we witness this magnum opus on the celluloid, news is that the film has a Game Of Thrones connection. GoT is one of the series that has got the entire world talking so when we heard that there is a similarity between the Aamir starrer and this series, we had all ears.
A source close to the project revealed that the film is being shot in the same location where Game Of Thrones was shot in Malta.
Thugs team shot extensively in Malta – the location where the Game of Thrones was also shot. So, in terms of scale, Thugs will live up to all the hype that the film has. Malta has some very uncommon, incredible spots that look outstanding. It is also a place that not many people have been or seen so there will be an incredible novelty for everyone to see the breath-taking visuals on offer in Thugs. Having created the massive ships and shot in these extravagant locations, Thugs will be a treat for audiences when they see it on the big screen.
The source further added,
Vijay Krishna Acharya has researched and dedicated lots of time to set the film which is a fantasy adventure in a period that no one has seen or has a point of reference. This makes the film look unique and fresh and massive in scale. Malta is an untapped territory by film-makers and Thugs will show a world that is new to people which will add to Thugs’ incredible visual appeal. Thugs also releases in IMAX across the world so the experience of watching this scale on the big screen will be a talking point.
Apart from Malta, this extravagant fantasy action adventure is also shot in in the rainforests of Thailand and the deserts and palaces of Rajasthan.
Now, I can’t wait for November to arrive already!
