The makers of Jhund released its teaser on Tuesday.
The first teaser of Amitabh Bachchan starrer Jhund is out. The Nagraj Manjule directorial also features Sairat actors Akash Thosar and Rinku Rajguru.
Though Bachchan is not seen in the teaser, his baritone in the background does the needful. The video has him telling the audience - "Don't call it Jhund (crowd). Call it a team." This as we hear the sound of chains, followed by a back shot of a group of young boys and girls in attack mode.
Jhund is a biographical sports drama based on the life of Vijay Barse, the founder of NGO Slum Soccer. Professor Barse helped a group of slum kids form a football team of their own. His NGO works towards the upliftment of underprivileged children through football.
