Jhund Movie Story

Jhund Movie is based on the life of Vijay Barse, a retired sports teacher who founded an NGO called Slum Soccer. He managed to rehabilitate street kids by keeping them off drugs and crime by turning them into soccer players and building a whole team.

Jhund Movie was announced back in 2017 but has faced quite a few roadblocks on the way. Initially, it was supposed to be completed and released in theatres on 20 September 2019. However, the makers got embroiled in a copyright dispute, subject to which a civil court in Telangana ordered a stay on the film. The makers approached the Supreme Court in October 2020, but the court refused to lift the stay.

However, the Supreme Court ordered the lower court in Telangana to dispose of the matter within six months. It is not yet unconfirmed if the case has been dismissed or settled outside court.

Jhund Movie theatrical release will precede that of the Yash Raj Films production Shamshera, which is set to be released the following weekend on 25 June 2021 and going to be released on 18 June 2021.

Jhund Movie is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Raaj Hiremath, Savita Raj Hiremath, Nagraj Manjule, Gargee Kulkarni, Sandip Ssingh and Meenu Aroraa under the banner of T-Series, Tandav Films Entertainment and Aatpat.

Legal news website LiveLaw.in stated that the court directed that the lower court dispose of the suit within six months.

A bench headed by Chief Justice of India SA Bobde dismissed the special leave petition filed by Super Cassettes Ltd. The petition challenged the decision of a division bench of the Telangana high court to dismiss an appeal against the 17 September order of the trial court. 

The trial court, on 17 September, had restrained the producers from exhibiting or broadcasting the film until further orders. The producers appealed against this, but the trial court’s order was upheld by the division bench of the Telangana high court.

The producers, represented by senior advocates VR Dhond and PS Narasimha, argued that releasing the film after six months would render it ‘useless’. The producers were willing to come to a settlement of Rs1.3 crore, which the plaintiff refused.

Jhund Movie is based on the real-life story of coach Vijay Barse, who coached a football team of poor children to represent India at the ‘Homeless World Cup’ in Brazil. The film ran into a controversy after filmmaker Nandi Chinni Kumar claimed to have bought the copyright to the story from footballer Akhilesh Paul. Paul was a member of the Slum Soccer Club and went on to captain India at the Homeless World Cup.
