Filmmaker Nagraj Manjule's Sairat was one of the biggest hits of 2016. And since then the fans of the movie have been eagerly waiting to see the two protagonists together once again on the screen. Rinku Rajguru and Akash Thosar who played Archi and Parshya in the Marathi movie became stars overnight. And if the latest reports are to be believed, the two will soon reunite on the screens. The one to make this happen is no one else but Sairat's director Nagraj himself. Case in point, the director's debut Hindi movie, Jhund. And in case you missed it, the movie features Amitabh Bachchan in the lead.
However, this time the two actors won't be paired opposite each other. While the Shahenshah dons the garb of sports teacher Vijay Barse, Rinku and Akash will essay soccer players who hail from the slum. Apparently, the two actors have already started shooting for the movie in Nagpur for a week. Also, they are playing captains of the two teams. And it would be quite obvious that the two actors would be on cloud nine to share the screen space with a legendary actor.
Interestingly, it won't be the only reunion that the movie will see. Along with the leads of Sairat, the makers have also got on board another actress from the regional movie. Chhaya Kadam who played Suman akka in Sairat, will play an integral character in the movie. She will play Amitabh's on-screen wife in Jhund.
Jhund is a movie based on the life of soccer coach Vijay Barse who found an NGO named Slum Soccers to popularise the sport amidst the slum kids.
