Mumbai: Actor Jackie Shroff and Amrita Singh would be paired together again after almost two decades in Yash Raj Films` `Aurangzeb`.

Jackie and Amrita had shared screen space for Yash Chopra`s 1993 film `Aaina`.

After signing Yash Raj Films` `Dhoom 3`, Jackie has also been finalised for yet another project `Aurangzeb`.

"Yes I am doing `Aurangzeb` opposite Amrita. I can`t talk about the film or my role," Jackie told PTI adding that he starts shooting for the movie from August 11.

Meanwhile, after the success of `Ishaqzaade`, actor Arjun Kapoor will be seen in `Aurangzeb`.

Directed by Atul Sabharwal, the movie will present Arjun in a double role.

Jackie is also looking forward to the release of a Marathi film `Hridaynath` and KC Bokadia`s `Dirty Politics`.

To be released soon, `Hridaynath` is a story of Mr Sawant, a teacher by profession with great principles, whom people come to seek advice. However, he undergoes heart transplantation and emerges with new-found principles.

"It is a very nice and interesting film. I play a school master, an introvert person with good principles. In the second half of the film how my character changes and why, that`s what the story is," Jackie said.

Jackie also stars in `Dirty Politics`, alongwith Om Puri, Ashutosh Rana, Anupam Kher, Rajpal Yadav, Mallika Sherawat and others.

The shooting for the film is still underway and the second schedule will begin from October.
