In between the shots during the filming of the Yash Raj Films’s one of the biggest projects, Thugs of Hindostan, Aamir Khan, who is one of the lead actors in the movie, was seen doing an interesting thing to kill his boredom.

In a series of behind-the-scenes pictures shared by actor Fatima Sana Shaikh on her Instagram, her co-star Aamir can be seen deep in concentration, playing chess, on the sets.
