Want to cast Farhan Akhtar in one of my films: Sudhir Mishra

Panaji: After delivering a brilliant performance in `Bhaag Milkha Bhaag`, director-turned-actor Farhan Akhtar has found a fan in filmmaker Sudhir Mishra, who wants to work with him in the future.

Mishra said that contrary to reports Farhan is not a part of his film `Dhruv` but he is planning to offer another film to the `Dil Chahta Hai` director.

"I am going to do `Dhruv` but it will not star Farhan. I am planning another film with Farhan. I have not narrated him yet. But I want to cast him. I feel he is an outstanding actor.

"I haven`t seen a performance of such integrity like the one he did in `Bhaag Milkha Bhaag`. I am so glad that he took the plunge in acting," Mishra said in an interview on the sidelines of IFFI.

Mishra, who last directed `Inkaar`, will soon begin work on `Pehle Aap Janaab`, which was earlier titled `Mehrunissa`. When asked why he decided to change the title even before the commencement of shooting, the filmmaker said, "The earlier title was sounding like a story of a courtesan and a period film, which it is not. It is a comedy in the best sense of the word and about love and life. Hence, I decided to change the title."

The film stars Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor and Mishra`s favourite lady Chitrangda Singh. The `Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi` director said he is looking forward to shoot with both Rishi and Big B.
