The teaser of upcoming biographical Hindi film Jhund has finally been released. The film is based on the life of Vijay Barse, founder of NGO Slum Soccer. It follows the story of the Nagpur-based football coach as he sets up a soccer team and trains a group of slum children, helping them achieve victory in the game. Jhund stars Amitabh Bachchan, Akash Thosar and Rinku Rajguru. The film’s teaser, unveiled today, shows boys of all ages, a group of slum dwellers, holding baseball gloves, bats, chains, sticks, etc. walking forward, probably towards Amitabh, with their backs to the camera. Amitabh’s voice-over tells the audience, “Jhund nahi kahiye sir, team kahiye... team (Call them a team, not a crowd).”
