After directing Hrithik Roshan in forthcoming film ‘Kites’, director Anurag Basu has now roped in Abhishek Bachchan for his next project.

The film will be produced by Junior B’s good friend Goldie Behl, who had last directed the ‘Guru’ actor in box office dud ‘Drona’

According to sources close to Basu, the role in the untitled project was sketched out specifically keeping Abhishek in mind and is Basu’s biggest project till date.

“The movie will be Anurag’s most ambitious project till date. It truly has a genius script,” sources said.

The film will be shot in exotic locations and a lot of work will go into Abhishek’s look for the film.

“Goldie Behl is leaving no stones unturned for the film. This is a dream project and will be Anurag’s best work till date,” adds the source.

Interestingly Basu had once stirred a controversy by saying that Amitabh Bachchan should retire gracefully as he was now doing mechanical roles.

The 67-year-old Bollywood icon had hit back at Basu saying, “I took no one’s advice when I wanted to enter the film industry and shall take no one’s advice, as to when I should leave it.”
