Aamir urged me to do Nagraj Manjule’s ‘Jhund’: Bachchan

Friday, September 28, 2018

Amitabh Bachchan has said his 'Thugs of Hindostan' co-star Aamir Khan asked him to take up Nagraj Manjule's next 'Jhund'.

Bachchan will play the role of a professor who builds a soccer team with street kids in 'Jhund', which is the 'Sairat' helmer's first Hindi directorial.

“I remember, when I discussed that with Aamir, he told me I must do this film. And you know what happens when Aamir endorses something... So I am doing that,” Bachchan told reporters.

“We will start working on the film from November. It is a real life story. It is about underprivileged children and those staying in slums, a sporting team is made with these bunch of actors,” he added.

The actor was speaking at the trailer launch of 'Thugs of Hindostan', which brings together two powerhouse performers – Bachchan and Khan on screen for the first time.

The duo were earlier supposed to star in 'Rishta' years ago, but the project never took off.

Aamir said, “We had a film together that Indra Kumar was going to make called 'Rishta'. It was announced very long back, but due to several reasons it could not be made. “

Since then I was waiting to get an opportunity to work with him in a film. I am glad it happened now. I don't have the guts to say 'no' to a film with Amit ji.”
