Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan hopes to establish an institute dedicated to the work of his late father Harivansh Rai Bachchan, who was a poet.

Amitabh Bachchan admitted that reading all his father`s poems over and over again was not possible. But he wished to open an institute for his father.

"Jaya (Bachchan) and I have been thinking about it. We hope to open an institute where research of my father`s poems can be done," the 70-year-old said here Thursday.

He said apart from his father`s poems, a thesis on Irish poet W.B Yeats is also great and one can learn a lot from it.
