After creating much buzz among the audiences with the on-set pictures, the makers of Amitabh Bachchan upcoming flick Jhund has now unveiled the first look poster of the film.
Helmed by Sairaat director Nagraj Popatrao Manjule, the film is reportedly based on the life of Vijay Barse, the founder of Slum Soccer. In the film, Bachchan plays a professor who motivates street children and initiates a football team.
On Monday, megastar Amitabh Bachchan took to his official Twitter handle to share the first look of the film. In the poster, Amitabh can be seen showing his back posture. The poster has Big B facing his back to the camera as she stares into what appears to be an abandoned, fenced area with only two things featuring prominently – a red and white football and a dilapidated car.
