Talking about Jhund’s plot. It is a biopic based on the life of football coach Vijay Barse, who founded an NGO, Slum Soccers, which helps slum kids learn the sport. Sometime back in the past, 2 filmmakers had plans to make this biopic.
In this regard, a source had told DNA After Hrs,
“On the one hand, there was Meenu Kumarr, who claimed she had bought the rights to Vijay’s story. She approached a few production houses to come on board, but no one showed interest. On the other hand, there was another lady, Savita, who also started pitching the same idea to other production houses. As a result, there was a conflict between the two regarding the rights.”
