Filmmaker Rohit Shetty says that it is one of his dreams to direct Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan in an action movie.
“It is my dream to work with Mr Bachchan. I want to do an action film with him. I have not really told him that I want to work with him in a full-fledged film,” he said.
Big B had done a special song in Rohit Shetty’s directorial Bol Bachchan (2012).
Additionally, Mr. Bachchan has lent his voice for the opening episode of 5th season of action-adventure reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi, hosted by Shetty.
“Though I have worked with him in Bol Bachchan (where Mr Bachchan did a cameo), I want to work with him again. I was in an awe of him,” Shetty added.
Shetty also wishes to work with Salman Khan. He said in a statement; “I would love to do a film with him. But it has to be something big for us to come together, like how I and Shah Rukh Khan came together for Chennai Express. As of now there is nothing in hand (any script for Salman).”
Rohit Shetty is popular for his mass-entertainer movies. The filmmaker has been a fan of Amitabh since childhood. He says his favourites films featuring Big B are Zanjeer, Amar Akhtar Anthony and Deewar.
“I used to go to the sets of his films with my dad (veteran stunt-master-actor M B Shetty) and observe him. I still get scared when he is around,” said the Chennai Express director.
