Actor Amitabh Bachchan has started shooting for his upcoming film Jhund in Nagpur.
The cine icon on Monday evening took to Twitter and shared a few photograph of himself and captioned: “‘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!”
