Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan, who is busy shooting for "Thugs of Hindostan" in Thailand, finds it admirable to see women working on the set, saying they are taking over the world. The actor will be sharing screen space with Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh in the movie. The film is slated to hit the cinemas in Diwali 2018.
On his blog, Amitabh wrote: "Serenity not just in the woods and the skies above, but on the work place as well. A serenity of a different kind that exudes diligence and sincerity, speed of compliance, organising mastery, orderly management and professional diligence.
"And it all comes from the ladies working on set. An entire bunch of them, running about fulfilling commands, organising production needs and assuring the unit of the efficiency of their work."
The cine icon, 75, finds it admirable and "heartening to observe".
"A time when the only ladies on set was the heroine and her mother, this change in scenario is quite remarkable. The women are taking over the world. This is not just vacant banter. It is indeed factual, they shall in time and that time is not too far away," he said.
The "Piku" star said the present generation in filmdom is "quite remarkable"
On a related note, Amitabh Bachchan left for Thailand to shoot "Thugs Of Hindostan" recently and tweeted: "Travel beckons early morning for 'TOH' across seas and land. More later."
A previous schedule of the film was shot in Malta, Europe. The Yash Raj Films production is being helmed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, who directed Katrina and Aamir in "Dhoom: 3". It is an adaptation of the 1839 novel "Confessions of a Thug".
