Jhund will be Marathi filmmaker Nagraj Manjule's debut in the Hindi film industry and his first collaboration with the megastar. The director is known for his hit movie ‘Sairat’. The producer Savita Hiremath in an interview to Mumbai Mirror revealed how they chose slum kids to act in the film. She said, "There were no ego hassles or hierarchy. Mr Bachchan was like a father figure to the kids who were from real slums, never sitting in his vanity van but with them. He taught them not just the rules of the game which he knows well, but also about life itself, through stories."
