Sharing the pictures, Bachchan wrote: "Nagpur for Jhund -- the new project by Nagraj , his first in Hindi, the maker of Sairat the Marathi block buster .. a centre of attraction and 'Nagpur', geographically apparently the centre of geographic India. May the two centres thrive!" (sic)

Previously speaking about having Bachchan on board for his film, Manjule said, "No other actor fits the role, only Mr Bachchan can do justice to this particular character. All the others in the film are newcomers since I am known to work with fresh talent. The combination of Mr Bachchan and this young team will be something to look forward to."
Jhund is produced by Bhushan Kumar's T-Series, Savita Raj Hiremath, Manjule under the banner of T-Series Films, Taandav Films Entertainment Ltd, and Aatpat. Bachchan will also be seen in Sujoy Ghosh's Badla along with actress Taapsee Pannu.
