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 here 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.
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."
