"Yes, I will be directing Abhishek Bachchan in my second film. It's a comedy drama and the film will go on the floors by the mid of 2013. I have to finalise the location and only after that I would know when to start rolling the camera," Shukla told IANS.
"I believe in my script and I thought Abhishek is best suitable for the role and he will justify the role. The film is yet untitled," he added.
Asked if he has finalised the leading lady, he said: "No, we have not finalised the leading lady yet. Once we finalise the actress for our film, we will make an official announcement."
