"I have got a real good script written by a new writer. It is a human-drama. It is about a man who fights against all odds to follow or pursue his dreams. I feel Bachchan Sir would fit the bill of the protagonist," Shirish told PTI.
"I have met him (Bachchan) a couple of times at social events. I was always keen on directing him...hope this dream comes true. Once I return from Chandigarh, I shall look into the other script and take a call," the director said.
Presently, Shirish is busy with his second directorial venture, Joker, the shooting for which begins tomorrow in Chandigarh.
Joker, is an fantasy adventure film made in 3D format in Hindi, starring, Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha, Shreyas Talpade and Minissha Lamba in key roles besides Darshan Jariwala, Sanjay Mishra, Vindu Dara Singh and Asrani.
"My debut film Jaan-E-Mann (2006) was shot five years back. I am directing a film after a very long time. The wait has to be worth it. I have to do something spectacular this time," he said.
