Mumbai, April 28 (IANS) For R. Madhavan the opportunity to work with Bollywood icon Amitabh Bachchan in Leena Yadav's 'Teen Patti' is a dream come true.

'I'm finally going to work with Mr. Bachchan. It has been a long-cherished dream. When he did a guest appearance with me in 'Ramji Londonwale', I couldn't stand straight, I was so nervous and excited. Now we're finally working together. And all thanks to Arshad Warsi,' Madhavan told IANS.

Earlier Arsahd was signed for the role but he decided to opt out. Madhavan replaces him in the film.

Maddy will have to learn to play cards for his gambler's role.

'I've never played cards before, so I'll have to start from scratch. At the moment I've plenty of time to learn stationary skills . I've just had a painful molar extraction done. I can't go out and can't talk much either. In fact, I'm surprised the producers of 'Teen Patti' signed me with this swollen face,' said the actor.

Maddy goes into 'Teen Patti' at the year end. Right now he starts work on the Tamil version of Aziz Mirza's 'Yes Boss' where he steps into reigning Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan's shoes.

'Nishikant Kamat, who directed me in the Tamil version of 'Dombivali Fast' and in 'Mumbai Meri Jaan', put me in touch with the working class side of my personality. Now, I need to get back to playing super-heroic parts otherwise my audience in Tamil Nadu will think I've mellowed down incurably.'
