The makers of Thugs Of Hindostan released the second edition of behind-the-scene video titled 'Chapter 2: Shooting On The Ships,' on social media on Wednesday, in which they documented their experience of shooting on the ships. The three-and-a half-minute video features film's director Vijay Krishna Acharya and film's lead actors Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan and Fatima Sana Shaikh, who can be seen sharing their experience and all the challenges they faced while filming the action sequences on the ships. In the video, Vijay Krishna Acharya described the process of shooting on the ships as extremely "challenging" and revealed that they used water cannons, rain machines and wave makers in order to make the shoot look more authentic. Sharing his experience, Aamir Khan said that the thing that bothered him the most was the water on the deck. "It (water) used to make the deck very slippery and it was very difficult to get a firm grip. When you are shooting for action sequences and if your feet are not firm, you might end up hurting yourself."
In the video, Amitabh Bachchan said that that he has never worked in a film like Thugs Of Hindostan before and added, "I have never worked in an atmosphere like this." Fatima Sana Shaikh was all praises for Mr Bachchan's conviction and stated that despite performing high octane action sequences, the 75-year-old actor was never exhausted and she said "he barely took any breaks."

The first edition of the making of Thugs Of Hindostan was released on Monday, in which the makers of the film revealed that they especially constructed two life-size ships for the film in Malta. Aamir Khan, who was initially apprehensive about shooting on the ships said, "There's a lot of work on the ship in this film and to be honest, I was concerned about that because it is not something we've been doing in India in films."
Take a look at the video here:
Thugs Of Hindostan is set against the backdrop of 1795, in which Aamir Khan plays the role of a conman named Firangi, while Amitabh Bachchan plays the role of a sea commander named Khudabaksh (also called Azad). The film also features Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh, who will be seen playing the role of a dancer named Surraiya and a warrior named Zafira, respectively. The film also stars John Clive as the Commander of the East India Company.
Thugs Of Hindostan will hit the screens on November 8.
