Amitabh Bachchan who has been in the film industry for nearly 50 years now has taken up a new challenge. The actor has started shooting for his next Jhund in Nagpur on a non-stop schedule.
While his role in Jhund has been kept tightly under wraps, we’ve got to know that is one of the most charismatic avatars he will be seen playing onscreen. Jhund is inspired by the life of Vijay Barse who is the founder of slum soccers. Mr Bachchan plays a professor who channelizes the street kids to build a soccer team.
The thespian took to Twitter on Monday 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 blockbuster .. a centre of attraction and ‘Nagpur’, geographically apparently the centre of geographic India. May the two centres thrive!”
Amitabh Bachchan starrer, Jhund produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series, Savita Raj Hiremath, Nagraj Manjule under the banner of T-Series Films, Tandav Films Entertainment Ltd.
