    Speaking about directing Amitabh Bachchan in this film, Nagraj Manjule told the Hindu in an interview, "I have been a fan of his since my childhood. As a child, I used to imagine two friends: Lord Krishna and Bachchan sir. He is so professional and a director's actor. He would come on time, discuss creative issues, bear the delays, guide us. Though many of the talent on set had never faced a camera before, he was patient and never refused a retake. Working with him was a joy."

    Manjule also opened up on the rest of the cast and revealed that a majority of them faced the camera for the first time in Jhund which is based on the real-life story of Vijay Barse, founder of Slum Soccer.

    Jhund marks Nagraj Manjule's directorial debut in the Hindi film industry.
