Mumbai: After doing some action films, Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan is now all set to tickle the funny bone with `Hera Pheri 4`.

"I have signed Anees Bazmee`s film, `Hera Pheri 4`. We will start shooting next month," Abhishek said.

After three back-to-back action films -- Mani Ratnam`s `Raavan`, Ashutosh Gowariker`s `Khelenge Hum Jee Jaan Se` and Abhinay Deo`s `Game`, the actor has opted for a change and signed a comedy film.

"I am not a calculating actor. I don`t choose the genres," Abhishek told reporters.

The `Hera Pheri` series started with the funny trio of Akshay Kumar, Suneil Shetty and Paresh Rawal in lead roles will now have Abhishek, Sanjay Dutt and Nana Patekar.

The film will be produced by Feroz Nadiadwala and directed by Anees Bazmee. The earlier sequels were directed by Priyadarshan. "It is going to be one of the funniest comedies," Abhishek said.

The actor will be seen next in Abbas Mustan`s `Players`, which is the remake of Hollywood film, `The Italian Job` alongside Bobby Deol, Sonam Kapoor, Bipasha Basu, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Sikandar Kher and Omi Vaidya.
