Abhishek Bachchan to coach dad Amitabh Bachchan on nuances of football>

On the eve of his 74th birthday, Amitabh Bachchan has embarked on yet another challenging role. This time as the well-known football coach Vijay Barse who helped hundreds of underprivileged kids to reach their goals in Nagraj Manjule’s untitled film.

Though as the coach Mr B won’t be required to play football on screen, he does need to be clued in to the game’s nitty-gritty. And who better equipped to give the seasoned superstar some vital tips on football than his son Abhishek Bachchan? A diehard football aficionado and a passionate player of the game, Abhishek will now take some time off to clue in his Pa on the high-points of football.

Says a source close to the Bachchan family, “Bachchan Saab has played football when he worked in Kolkata as a young man. But that was many years ago. Abhishek is very much into the game. Bachchan Saab can get no better sports coach than his son.”
