Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan recently started shooting for his film Jhund, which is being shot in Nagpur. Big B took to his Twitter account to share a few pictures of himself, captioning them, “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!"
Directed by Nagraj Manjule, Jhund is reportedly based on the life of Vijay Barse, who is the founder of Slum Soccers. Big B plays role of a professor who channelises the street children to build a soccer team.
Jhund is produced by Bhushan Kumar's T-Series, Savita Raj Hiremath, Manjule under the banner of T-Series Films, Taandav Films Entertainment Ltd, and Aatpat.
Amitabh will also be seen in Sujoy Ghosh's Badla along with actress Taapsee Pannu.
