Anupam Kher is shooting for a fascinating new film about the warm relationship between a man and his granddaughter in "Hawai Dada". And what makes it special is that veteran actress Tanuja is playing his wife.

"She has always been a favourite. She is one of our cinema's natural born actresses. Working with Tanuja in Hawai Dada is such a pleasure," Anupam told IANS.

"She's totally hassle-free and very entertaining on the sets. I had the privilege of working with her sister, the legendary Nutan, in Subhash Ghai's Karma," added Anupam who acted in films like Dus Kahaniyaan, Laaga Chunari Mein Daag, Apna Asmaan, Victoria No. 203: Diamonds Are Forever and Dhokha last year.

Debutant Ajay Kartik is directing Hawai Dada.

"I seem to be working with new, very talented directors all the time. In fact, one of my best films this year, Wednesday, is directed by another debutant Neeraj Pandey. Hawai Dada is another memorable experience," said Anupam.

On Jan 1, Anupam shot the entire day outside Amitabh Bachchan's residence, Jalsa, for Vikram Razdan's Bhatti Ki Chutti.

"I play this massive Bachchan fan who just hangs around Bachchans' residence to catch a glimpse of the star."

He dismisses as premature a report that Amitabh will make an appearance in Bhatti Ki Chutti .

"It's too early to say whether he'll appear in the film or not. Even if he doesn't, my character of the Hercule Poirot-like detective will continue to be his fan."
