“I dont have a scene or a shot with him. I hope we can work together some day in a film. I would be ok doing even a small role in his film. He is very popular …than me,” Amitabh Bachchan told reporters here at the trailer launch of Bhootnath Returns.

“It is always great to work with younger actors…one learns a lot from them,” he said.

Apparently, Ranbir Kapoor will make his entry in the film in a crucial point.

Amitabh Bachchan will reprise the role of ‘Bhootnath’ who is a thick friend of the child Banku. Shahrukh Khan who played father to Banku will reprise his role in the sequel too.

Amitabh Bachchan will play the role of a friendly ghost in the sequel to ‘Bhootnath’. “In the first part my character goes to heaven and then he comes back to earth and how he meets this child called Akhrot is what the story is about,” he said.

Amitabh Bachchan will shake a leg with composer-singer Honey Singh in a rap song for the film and the song is yet to be shot. During the trailer launch Big B played card tricks and showed some magic to the media.

‘Bhootnath Returns’ a sequel to 2008 horror-comedy ‘Bhootnath’, also stars Boman Irani and Marathi actress Usha Jadav. The film is being directed by Nitesh Tiwari and produced by T-Series & BR Films.
