Amitabh plays a gambler in Teen Patti

india Updated: Jul 23, 2007 16:49 IST

Amitabh Bachchan is all set to portray a gambler's role after many years for director Leena Yadav's Teen Patti, which also stars Arshad Warsi.

The film is still in its pre-production stages and the director isn't too keen to reveal much. Yadav had earlier directed Bachchan's daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai in the rather unusual Shabd.

The Big B, however, would have to be adept at playing cards to essay his character.

"And I'm terrible with cards!" Bachchan exclaimed. He has earlier played a cards whiz in Shakti Samanta's The Great Gambler. But that was many years ago.

So can his co-star Arshad help him here?

"Not at all!" chuckles Arshad. "I can't play cards ... nor do I gamble. But I can fake anything!"

But he sure is looking forward to working with the superstar.

"I've waited really long to do a film with Mr Bachchan. Though we've done an ad together we've never really shared screen space," he said.
