London: Along with Australian actor Joel Edgerton, American film director Kathryn Bigelow is working on a film on Al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden`s death, says megastar Amitabh Bachchan.

The 69-year-old played a perfect host to filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra and Edgerton who visited him Sunday.

"Evening visit by Joel Edgerton, colleague in `The Great Gatsby` doing film on killing of Osama, directed by (Kathryn) Bigelow of `Hurt Locker`," Bachchan posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.

"Errrmmm... a clarification in case you have read me wrong... that`s Joel doing film on Osama with Bigelow ... not me (sic)!," he added.

The actor got the chance to work with Edgerton in director Baz Luhrman`s latest production "The Great Gatsby". The film`s cast also features Leonardo Di Caprio and Tobey Maguire.
