Another standard of professionalism set by Big B!
Amitabh Bachchan continued shooting for Thugs Of Hindostan in Malta despite rib fracture and severe pain!
Legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan is the ultimate inspiration. Even at his golden age, this man is being an example of professionalism and dedication like he has always been! Lately, Big B and team were shooting for his upcoming mega film Thugs Of Hindostan in Malta. The film also stars Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, and Fatima Sana Sheikh. The veteran star accidentally got injured while performing an action scene and was deeply pained. But, he refused to halt the shoot and continued, the crew was ready to reschedule the shoot for him.
According to a leading daily, A source revealed, "Mr. Bachchan had wrapped up his portions and was all set to fly out after an extra day’s work when a shooting pain in his lower back kept growing exponentially. Filming for the action scenes in Malta for Thugs of Hindostan had actually resulted in a minor injury for the mega star. He cracked his upper left rib but continued to work despite excruciating pain. Given that the film’s shoot was working to a tight schedule, he continued to shoot, dealing with this pain. Which is why, on the last day, writer and director of Thugs of Hindostan Vijay Krishna Acharya wanted to avoid shooting given the pain Mr. Bachchan was facing. But instead, Mr. Bachchan chose to complete the shoot."
Director Vijay Krishna Acharya also added, "To me, having Mr. Bachchan on set, for Thugs of Hindostan was an extra ordinary experience in itself. I have grown up idolizing him and am an absolute fan of his Seventies films like Deewar. That he would have to deal with pain had me worried. I had offered to reschedule the last day’s shoot but he insisted on completing these portions and actually did a fine job! The kind of professional focus, commitment and sheer love for cinema he has is quite unmatched. I am overwhelmed, as is the unit that also worked at 100 percent to make this day’s work easier."
Big B came back from Malta and tweeted: "Back from work on Thugs Of Hindostan... It is rough and tough! But when ever did anyone gain without it." We hope for his speedy recovery. Thugs Of Hindostan is a Yash Raj Films Presentation which is scheduled to release next year.
