If reports are to be believed, Aamir Khan is very enthusiastic about Thugs of Hindostan, Yash Raj’s big budget period film co-starring Amitabh Bachchan that is one of the most awaited films of the year. While Aamir is known to get deeply involved in every film he does (probably the reason he does such few films), this time he is in a more collaborative mood this time than usual. “He’s always known to be much more than an actor on the sets of his films. But this time for Thugs Of Hindostan he’s hands-on with the official director Vijay Krishna Acharya,” says the source. And Acharya, known to friends as Victor, doesn’t mind at all.
“Aamir inputs are helping the film to become bigger and better with each passing day of shooting. Victor is happy to have Aamir’s inputs. In fact so high is Aamir’s volume of contribution that even producer Aditya Chopra is happy to listen to the Superstar’s suggestions and makes sure they are included in the shooting,” says the source. Apparently Aamir’s co-actors in Thugs Of Hindostan don’t mind taking instruction from him. “Whether it is Katrina or Fatima Sana Shaikh, they know Aamir is very much in collaboration with the director. Even Bachchan Saab is open to Aamir’s suggestions,” says the source.
Incidentally, Big B has never worked with Aamir Khan until now. The duo had done some stage shows together back in the 90s but this is the first time that the two superstars will be seen sharing screen space. Well, that alone will be worth the price of the ticket!
