No expense is being spared to ensure Yash Raj Films’ Thugs Of Hindostan turns out to be the blockbuster that it is meant to be. Sources close to YRF reveal that the film’s Rs 90-crore budget has shot up by at least Rs 10 crore.
“There is no compromising with the budget — be it for the stars or for the locations where the film is being shot. The best technicians from the world over have joined hands with producer Aditya Chopra and director Vijay Krishna Acharya,” says a source close to Yash Raj.
In addition, A-list stars are being added to the cast every day. With Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif already in the cast, we now hear that Shah Rukh Khan would make a very special appearance in a film. A source informs, “Aditya’s instruction to his director Vijay is to make a high-end action-adventure drama with the most spectacular visual effects seen in Hindi cinema. People think the role model for Thugs Of Hindostan is Pirates Of The Caribbean. But it is a lot more that that. After Baahubali, Aditya wants Thugs Of Hindostan to be the next level of showmanship from India on the global platform.”
