In Theatres 08-05-2020

Amitabh Bachchan’s much awaited social drama, “Jhund” is scheduled to appear on the screens on 8 May, 2020. The teaser has been unveiled already and looks promising. Bachchan’s deep baritone requesting some ‘sir’ not to call his squad “Jhund”, rather as a team, has already piqued interest in the film. Big B plays the lead character (Barse) here and he is supported by Akash Thosar and Rinku Rajguru in other major roles in the film.

“Jhund” is based on the life story of Vijay Barse who is a Nagpur based retired sports professor and who popularized the phenomenon of ‘Jhoparpatti football’ (slum soccer). He also founded ‘Krida Vikas Sanstha Nagpur’ (KVSN).  Barse stated to press that though he never met Amitabh Bachchan but he is very happy about this movie as Bachchan’s involvement would further cast light upon his mission of slum soccer.

‘Sairat’ director Nagraj Popatrao Manjule has directed the film. The music of the film has been composed by Ajay-Atul. This biographical sports drama has been produced by Bhusan Kumar, Krishan Kumar Raaj Hiremath, Savita Raj Hiremath and Nagraj Manjule wherein the production companies are T-Series, Tandav Films Entertainment Pvt. Ltd and Aatpat Films. Both Rinku and Akash, who are famous for “Sairat”, are excited to share the silver screen space with AB senior. This is also Nagraj Manjule’s Hindi debut film. The pair of Rinku and Akash has reunited with Manjule too in the sets. Sudhakar Yakkanti Reddy is behind the cinematography. The movie will remind the small motivations and big dreams which still exist among human beings. Barse is known to have stated that he wants to remain a simple man who never wants to leave the lanes of the city but he would like his idea and endeavor to traverse the whole world through this film.
