Actor Abhishek Bachchan had earlier produced Paa, which was directed by R Balki and had featured actor Amitabh Bachchan (right). The trio of the 2009-hit film is all set to team up for another film.

However, R Balki’s next has higher budget than Paa. "Balki’s new film is a much bigger film. It will require a higher budget compared to Paa. We are currently in the process of locking the script and working on it. The pre-production is going on. It’s a bigger film so the film requires bigger budget," Abhishek said about the film that also features his father, actor Amitabh Bhachchan.

Reportedly, Kamal Haasan’s younger daughter’s, Akshara Haasan, will debut as an actor with this film. She is cast opposite Dhanush. 

Abhishek, who’ll be seen in Dhoom:3, said he is open to doing regional films too. "I have done Bengali films. I am an actor so if I am comfortable, I am ready to work in any language. If I can overcome the hurdle of language and if I feel I can do justice to the role I am open to it," said Abhishek, who has also been part of a Bengali film titled Antarmahal with late Rituparno Ghosh.
