New Delhi: Choreographer-turned-filmmaker Prabhudheva has a great idea in mind. Well, the maverick director, who is better known as the 'Indian Michael Jackson' was recently quoted as saying that he wants to make a film like Hollywood blockbuster 'Lord Of The Rings' but on the lines of 'Ramayana'.

Ever thought, if that could be done on reel? "I would love to make it. Ramayana has to be like 'Lord of the Rings'. But the money has to be huge... Someone should be ready to put in that huge amount of money," he was quoted as saying.

The "Wanted" director also wishes to direct megastar Amitabh Bachchan and south superstar Rajinikanth.

"There was an opportunity to work with him (Amitabh Bachchan) but things did not happen because of date issues. I hope to work with him. Whenever he calls I will be ready," Prabhudeva said.

"Sir (Rajinikant) has to decide of doing a film with me. He is a big superstar. I would love to work with him," he said.
