The Telangana High Court has stayed the release of Amitabh Bachchan’s upcoming film Jhuk. Now this image cannot be published in the country, abroad or on any digital platform. The petitioner is Hyderabad-based filmmaker Nandi Chinni Kumar, who claims to have the exclusive right to make a film about the life of footballer Akhilesh Paul. But in spite of that the animal was produced. The petitioner also alleged that Akhilesh Paul had cheated him.
Nandi’s complaint – Akhilesh withdraws
Nandi says Akhilesh told him that he made the rights only to make documentaries, not to make films. Nandi further said that the animal makers informed him by telephone that he had bought the rights to make his picture from Akhilesh. However, the producers did not share any written documents with him.
The coach-player story was therefore controversial
Amitabh Bachchan will be seen playing the role of coach Vijay Bursi. Who will star in the film NGO founder Soccer Slum. Vijay teaches football to the children of Slam so that they stay away from bad company. Akhilesh Paul will play an important role in the film from gangster to soccer player.
Will be released in May 2020
The film also stars Sairat, Rinku Rajguru and Akash Thosar. The play is being co-produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishna Kumar, Raj Hirmath, Sabita Raj and Nagraj. The film was supposed to be released on May 7 before the lockdown. Sairat Khyati Nagraj is managing the animal. This is Nagraj’s debut in the Hindi film world.
