New Delhi: Amitabh Bachchan, who is filming Thugs of Hindostan in Jodhpur's Mehrangarh Fort, documented a significant change in the gender dynamics on the film's sets on his blog. On International Women's Day 2018, the 75-year-old actor wrote: "Such a joy to see the ladies on set, a region where they were nonexistent in the years gone by. In my time there were just two on shoots - the leading lady and her mother, that's it." As of today, on the sets of Thugs of Hindostan, which is backed by Yash Raj Films, several women are a part of the film's unit. "The entire controls barring a few, are managed by the ladies. Efficient, demanding, disciplined, screaming their heads off to inefficiency, but getting it done. So, so remarkable," Big B posted.
