It is my dream to direct Big B in a film: Rohit Shetty

Director Rohit Shetty said his dream is to direct Amitabh Bachchan in an action film and also wishes to team up with Dabangg star Salman Khan. "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," Shetty said.

Director Rohit Shetty said his dream is to direct Amitabh Bachchan in an action film and also wishes to team up with Dabangg star Salman Khan. "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," Shetty said.

Bachchan had done a special song in Shetty's directorial venture Bol Bachchan. The 71-year-old actor had also lent his voice for the opening episode of the fifth season of action-adventure reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi, hosted by Shetty. "Though I have worked with him in Bol Bachchan (where Bachchan did a cameo), I want to work with him again. I was in an awe of him," he said.

The director, known for his mass-entertainer films, said he has been watching Bachchan since childhood and his films like Deewar, Zanjeer, Amar Akhtar Anthony are among his favourites. "I used to go to the sets of his films with my dad (veteran stunt-master-actor MB Shetty) and observe him. I still get scared when he is around," he said.

Besides Big B, Shetty said he would also like to work with Dabangg star Salman Khan. "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)," he said.
