Director Rohit Shetty is overwhelmed with the response his comic caper Bol Bachchan is getting and is open to making a sequel.

"You want me to make a sequel? OK, we will think about it," said Rohit at a theatre here where he and Abhishek Bachchan had come to gauge the audiences' reaction.

Abhishek, who has worked in the Dhoom frenchise and also doing Dostana 2, is more than eager to pitch in.

"He (Rohit Shetty) is a sequel king director. He has made three-four sequels and I have worked in three-four sequels. So if he says, we both are ready but now we have to persuade Ajayji (Ajay Devgn) for it," the 36-year-old said.

Rohit's first comedy film Golmaal: Fun Unlimited released in 2006 and was a super hit. He made two sequels to the film - Golmaal Returns (2008) and Golmaal 3 (2010) and is already working on Golmaal 4 slated for a release in 2013.

Meanwhile, Abhishek is very happy that the movie is running to full houses.

"Today, our movie has been screened here (Galaxy Theatre, Mumbai) and is being liked by the audiences. So it feels good. Till now, we haven't met the audience. We are standing at the back waiting for them to know their reactions. But the biggest compliment is that the movie is running houseful," said Abhishek.

Bol Bachchan hit theatres July 6 and is loosely based on Hrishikesh Mukherjee's 1979 cult-comedy Golmaal.
