Though the director was not available for a comment on the same, he did speak about his future film outings earlier. “I am making a film with Amit ji that is for sure. I will let you know in a few days about the film. I want to work with one and only Mr Bachchan. He is such a great actor. Till the time Amit ji is working, I will continue working,” Sujoy had said to The Indian Express.
