Heard this? Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan will do a sword fight in 'Thugs of Hindostan'


Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan sharing screen space for the first time in Thugs Of Hindostan has already created a lot of excitement among cinegoers. Now, we hear, the two actors will be seen doing intense action scenes in the period film. 

Bachchan, who was famous for his fight sequences and stunts, hasn’t done any in a long time. After Budddha Hoga Tera Baap (2011), he will revisit his action avatar. Even Aamir, for that matter, hasn’t done any intense fight scenes since Dhoom 3 (2013), not counting the few wrestling scenes he did in Dangal

However, in this action-adventure film, both the actors will engage in a sword fight. They are currently shooting the sequence in Mumbai. “The action sequence being filmed in Mumbai is elaborate. Both, Bachchan and Aamir, are currently preparing for the tough task with the action-director, as both are famous for doing their own stunts. Since the two are known to be perfectionists, the scene is expected to be quite a highlight in this lavish film,” says a source.
