Actor Hrithik Roshan, who has reportedly been approached to play the lead in Shekhar Kapur's ambitious film Paani, says it has been his dream to be directed by the filmmaker.
Asked if he has signed on the dotted line, Hrithik said: "I would just say that working with Shekhar Kapur is a lifelong dream of mine. Paani is a dream and I hope it happens.
"I am looking forward to working with Mr. Shekhar Kapur and apart from work, just being with that man, in his presence, I feel comforted," the 38-year-old said on Friday at the opening of new Whistling Woods acting academy.
"On a personal equation, Shekhar Kapur is kind of an enlightened soul. So when I am with him, I feel a little enlightened, I feel a little good about myself," he added.
Hrithik was last seen in Agneepath and is currently working on Krrish 3.
With many Bollywood actors turning directors, does Hrithik plan to wield the megaphone too?
"When I stop getting work as an actor, then I will have to earn my bread and butter somehow and then I will become a director, I guess."
