Megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s upcoming movie Thugs of Hindostan, directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya has become among the most anticipated releases of next year. As for the first time, Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan and perfectionist Amir Khan share space on the big screen. While Senior Bachchan is intensely taking part in the filming of each scene, there are speculations that sir Bachchan had a heated argument with director Vijay Krishna Acharya.

The incident took while shooting for a particular scene recently, when Senior Bachchan had an argument over with a director which last long for almost three hours. According to reports, Mr Bachchan was unhappy about a particular shot while director Acharya was rigid about it. The conversation soon resulted into an argument which eventually created tension on the sets. The matter only got resolved when Aamir Khan intervened and played the role of a peacemaker.

Director Vijay Krishna Acharya, however, denied the reports by saying, “There is no truth to this. Mr Bachchan is a delight to work with and is extremely professional. We are having a great time while filming this project. We share a warm rapport, so, I’m shocked at this disrespectful speculation.”
