Amitabh Bachchan Begins Shooting For His Football Film

Even as Nikhil Advani has been selected to direct  a football  film 1911  for John Abraham, Amitabh Bachchan  flew to Nagpur  to finally shoot for  Nagaraj Manjule’s football film Jhund where  Mr Bachchan plays the legendary football coach Vijay Barse.

The actor has been  preparing for his footballer coach’s part  for more time than he had bargained  for, since the film fell into a producers’ squabble  until Bhushan  Kumar of T Series came forward  to rescue it.

The  preparation for the role included football tips from son Abhishek who is  a  huge football fan

“Not  that I  am not familiar with  the game. I’ve played football when I was in Kolkata. I am looking forward to working withNagraj Manjule. His Sairat was a game-changer.At this  stage  of  my career I look forward  to working with directors who can bring out  a new facet to acting  abilities,” said  Mr  Bachchan.

 Though Jhund won’t have  the Big B on the football field much we will probably see Abhishek Bachchan in the field playing the  younger version  of  his father.
