Even at the age of 74, megastar Amitabh Bachchan is one of the busiest actors in tinsel town. The best part about him is that no matter how chock-a-block his date diary is, if someone approaches him with a good script which excites him, he squeezes out some time from his busy schedule and does it. The same happened with director Nagraj Manjule, who broke onto the scene after delivering Marathi cinema’s highest grosser, Sairat (2016).
Nagraj went to the thespian of Hindi cinema with a script based on the life of Vijay Barse, a Pune based retired school teacher, who has been training underprivileged children in football ever since his retirement. Big B liked the script so much that he immediately agreed to be a part of the film which marks Nagraj’s debut in Bollywood.
Last week, Senior Bachchan confirmed about his association with the film and also revealed that the movie will mount floors in the month of October. And now the news is coming in that Jhund has been locked as the title of the movie.
Meanwhile, Big B is also doing Yash Raj Films’ Thugs Of Hindostan and 102 Not Out.
