Amitabh plays a football coach in his next, and who best than Abhi to give Pa tips!
Subhash K Jha reports.

Amitabh Bachchan has embarked on yet another challenging role.

He will play football coach Vijay Barse who helped underprivileged kids reach their goal in Nagraj Manjule's untitled film.

The Big B will not be required to play football on screen, but he will need to be clued in on the game's nitty-gritty.

And who better to give the superstar football tips than son Abhishek?

A passionate footie fan, Abhi will guide his Pa on the beautiful game.

Says a source close to the Bachchan family, "Bachchansaab played football when he worked in Kolkata as a young man. Abhishek is very much into the game. Bachchansaab can get no better sports coach than his son."
