Filmmaker Shirish Kunder, who will be donning the directorial cap after a gap of five years with Joker intends to rope in megastar Amitabh Bachchan for a movie, which he plans to make once he is done with this 3D project.

"I have got a real good script written by a new writer. It is a human drama about a man who fights against all odds to follow or pursue his dreams. I feel Bachchan sir would fit the bill of the protagonist," says Kunder.

Amitabh"I have met him (Bachchan) a couple of times at social events. I was always keen on directing him...hope this dream comes true. Once I return from Chandigarh, I shall look into the other script and take a call," the director says.

Joker is an fantasy adventure film made in 3D format in Hindi, starring, Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha, Shreyas Talpade and Minnisha Lamba in key roles besides Darshan Jariwala, Sanjay Mishra, Vindu Dara Singh and Asrani.
