Bhushan Kumar to produce Nagraj Manjule’s Hindi directorial debut ‘Jhund’

Friday, June 08, 2018

Bhushan Kumar is producing 'Sairat' director Nagraj Manjule's Hindi directorial debut 'Jhund', starring megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

The film will see Bachchan essay the role of Vijay Barse, a Nagpur-based retired sports teacher who starts a slum soccer movement. 'Jhund', which goes on floors soon, will be co-produced by Savita Raj Hiremath, according to a press release.

Hiremath said the film is a soccer slum story which explores “a hero in all of us”. “I was thinking of starting my next Bollywood venture and was looking for a emotional and relevant subject which would connect with the masses and channelise today's youth into positive energy. Since last three years I have been looking for such subjects and one of them is a biopic of Vijay Barse who promoted slum soccer in India and showcased Indian talent to the world. 'Jhund' is the slum soccer film which shows that there is a hero in all of us... And it's only a matter of opportunity life gives you,” she said, adding that she is thankful to Mr Bachchan for being part of the film.

Krishan Kumar, Raaj Hiremath and Manjule will co-produce.
