Legendary actor, Amitabh Bachchan is leading all the headlines after he dropped a brand new poster of his upcoming sports drama, Jhund. The film is directed by Nagraj Manjule and will hit theatres on March 4, 2022. In the film, Amitabh is playing the character of the famous social worker, Vijay Barse, who is the founder of NGO Slum Soccer. Apart from Big B, the cast of Jhund includes actors like Akash Thosar, Rinku Rajguru, Vicky Kadian, Ganesh Deshmukh and many more talented actors.
For the unversed, Vijay Barse is a social worker from Nagpur and had stunned the entire nation when he had narrated his story of building his organisation, NGO Slum Soccer, that uplifts the underprivileged children through the help of football. In an interview with a leading news portal, Vijay had praised Amitabh Bachchan's casting for portraying him in the film, Jhund.
A few moments back, Amitabh Bachchan took to his Instagram handle and shared the brand new poster of his upcoming film, Jhund. In the poster, Amitabh looked intense, as he can be seen holding a football in his hands and donning a tracksuit, as he is portraying the character of a coach in this sports drama. The iconic actor announced that the much-awaited film would hit theatres on March 4, 2022, and it made everyone delighted. Along with the poster, Amitabh penned a note in the caption, and it can be read as:
“Iss toli se muqaabla karne ke liye raho taiyaar! Humari team aa rahi hai #Jhund releasing on March 4, 2022 in cinemas near you. @amitabhbachchan @nagraj_manjule #BhushanKumar."
Since Amitabh Bachchan has dropped the poster of his film, Jhund, on his social media handles, he is receiving immense love for doing such a challenging role from people. However, it was his daughter, Shweta Bachchan Nanda, his granddaughter, Navya Naveli Nanda and his son, Abhishek Bachchan, whose comments on his post are giving major family goals. While Shweta wrote, "Yessss!" followed by some fire emoticons, Navya wrote, "Wohoooooo!" and Abhishek put muscle-flex and thumbs-up emoticons in the comment section.
While Amitabh Bachchan shares a beautiful bond with his kids, Abhishek Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan Nanda, there's no doubt he is extremely close to his granddaughter, Navya Naveli Nanda, with whom he has a friendly bond. Time and again, Amitabh and Navya have proved that they're the coolest grandfather-granddaughter duo of the film industry. For instance, on September 20, 2021, Big B had shared a beautiful video of Navya. In the video, we could see Navya was playing the piano gracefully and looking pro in it. However, the fun fact is that the gorgeousness is a self-taught pianist. Alongside it, the proud grandfather had written:
"Navya on the Piano. The admiration and pride of a Grandfather towards his Granddaughter, Navya Naveli. Self-taught, playing through memory."
On the professional front, Amitabh Bachchan will be next seen in the films, Jhund, Brahmastra and Runway 34.
