Bachchan had a tough time shooting for Thugs


Amitabh Bachchan shot for a massive sequence of actioner ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ in the rain forests and the picturesque Bora Island of Thailand. Director Vijay Krishna Acharya chose to shoot Khuda Baksh’s (played by Amitabh Bachchan) hide out in a cave which required a walk of half an hour to reach the destination. Revealing the tough time he had during the shoot, Bachchan says, “I had a lot of problems for the final walk. It had a climb, as it was mountainous. I have breathing problems. I tried a couple of times but it was not happening. They generously made a ‘paalkhi’ for me. I was lifted and taken to the location looking very regal.”
