Amitabh Bachchan has begun shooting for an exciting new movie, Jhund produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series, and directed by Nagraj Manjule. The film schedule began in Nagpur and is said to be a non-stop shoot.
While his role in Jhund has been kept tightly under wraps, we hear that is one of the most charismatic avatars Mr. Bachchan has played onscreen. Jhund is inspired by the life of Vijay Barse who is the founder of slum soccer. Mr Bachchan plays a professor who channels the street kids to build a soccer team.
The thespian on Monday took to Twitter to share a few photographs of himself while heading for the shoot of the film.
Sharing the pictures, Mr. Bachchan wrote: “Nagpur for Jhund — the new project by Nagraj , his first in Hindi, the maker of Sairat the Marathi block buster .. a centre of attraction and ‘Nagpur’, geographically apparently the centre of geographic India. May the two centres thrive!”
