At the age of 71, Amitabh Bachchan is still a coveted actor and a dream casting coup for some of the best directors working today.
Commercial kingpin Rohit Shetty of Singham and Chennai express fame readily admits: “I want to do an action film with Mr Bachchan.” The director got the superstar to do a special appearance song in his Bol Bachchan but says, “I have not really told him that it is my dream to work with him in a full-fledged film.”
Young Vikramaditya Motwane, the much acclaimed director of Lootera and Udaan, also expresses a similar wish. Ask him for his wish list of actors and he responds, “I would love to work with Mr. Bachchan. I wanted to work with him for a long time.” Unlike Rohit, Vikramaditya has already expressed his desire to Amitabh. The director reveals: “He knows this so maybe one day I will be able to work with him.”
