    After multiple delays due to COVID-19 , megastar Amitabh Bachchan 's sports drama " Jhund " will be theatrically released on March 4. The film marks the Hindi directorial debut of Nagraj Popatrao Manjule, best known for Marathi blockbuster " Sairat " and the critically-acclaimed 2013 drama "Fandry". Produced by T-Series, "Jhund" features Bachchan as Vijay Barse, a Nagpur-based retired sports teacher who pioneers a slum soccer movement.

The film is produced by Bhushan Kumar , Krishan Kumar, Raaj Hiremath, Savita Raj Hiremath, Manjule, Gargee Kulkarni and Meenu Aroraa under the banners of T-Series, Tandav Films Entertainment and Aatpat.
