After a successful theatrical run, Amitabh Bachchan's sports drama is now available to stream on the OTT platform ZEE5. The film premiered worldwide on the streaming platform on May 6 and has once again, been receiving great responses from the audience. 

Jhund, directed by Nagraj Manjule, revolves around the life of Vijay Barse, a social worker and the founder of Slum Soccer, an organisation, which facilitates better living conditions, upliftment and development of children from underprivileged backgrounds through football. The audiences loved and appreciated Amitabh Bachchan's portrayal of Vijay Barse in the movie and National Award-winning director, Nagraj Manjule's efforts in bringing to life the journey of a real-life hero on the celluloid. 

Adding to the grandeur of the story and to celebrate the inspiring story of Mr. Vijay Barse led by Amitabh Bachchan, ZEE5 unveiled a 100X100 ft poster over the Asalfa slums near the Mumbai airport, a spectacle for passengers of all flights landing in and taking off from the city of Mumbai. Sharing a bird eye view of the poster in a video, the makers wrote in their caption: "ab apun ka Jhund ko pura Bharat dekhega! ✈️ tumne dekha kya?"
