Katrina Kaif and Aamir Khan, who were last seen together in Dhoom, will now pair up for Thugs of Hindostan.

Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh will start shooting for Thugs of Hindostan in the first week of June.

This film brings together Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan for the first time and will be shot aboard two specially constructed, massive ships, that were built for over two months and are currently docked by the Maltese seaside.

The tiny European archipelago of Malta is known for its relatively unexplored seascape and scenic beaches.

Writer-director Vijay Krishna Acharya said in a statement, “The set of the film is in a high security water zone, with restricted access. Both these ships have been built in the early eighteenth century style, when vessels would carry cannons and other weapons. An international crew has been hard at work creating these elaborate ships in Malta. Most of the portions filmed on board these ships involve high octane action.”

With every detail, including its stellar star cast, Thugs of Hindostan has generated huge amounts of anticipation. Now with the promise of action on high seas and a dose of history, this mega project only builds more excitement. The film goes on floors on June 5.
