Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is enamoured by the majestic Meharangarh Fort, where he shot a sequence for his upcoming film Thugs of Hindostan. “The imposing and monumental Meharangarh Fort in Jodhpur. One of the largest in the country… intricate designing, impregnable structures and a fort that history states was never breached, ever. Its interiors so intricate, so artistically designed, housing within it several palaces… I wonder how they thought of the structure and how did they ever get to make something as imposing as this,” Big B wrote on his blog.
“I work here for the day. It’s more filming for ‘Thugs of Hindostan’. It’s tough work, it’s elaborate, it’s a nightmare production issue, but it is accomplished with relative ease,” he added.
Interestingly, the daunting Mehrangarh Fort also featured in the Batman film The Dark Knight Rises.
