After Baghban and Baabul, producer Ravi Chopra casts Amitabh Bachchan for the third time in Bhootnath, which will also feature Juhi Chawla in a pivotal role.

The film, which revolves around a man (Amitabh) and a child, will be the superstar's third film in two years where his main interaction is with a child. In Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Black and Apoorva Lakhia's Ek Ajnabee, too, the Big B has acted with child artistes.

"It's (the film) an interesting concept, and I couldn't say no to Ravi. We've known each other from the time I did Zameer for his banner more than three decades ago. Of course, Baghban and Baabul have cemented my relationship with the Chopras," Amitabh told IANS.

Bhootnath, planned as a year-end quickie, will also bring Amitabh together with Juhi, who has never worked with him except for once playing his daughter - in Suneil Darshan's Ek Rishta.

Bhootnath is being directed by Chopra's associate Vivek Sharma.
