The two stalwarts will come together for a movie eight years after their last venture

Megastar Amitabh Bachchan is overjoyed to work with actor Boman Irani in Bhootnath Returns after eight years. The last time they shared screen space was in the 2005 movie Waqt – The Race Against Time. “The shoot of Bhootnath Returns with the wonderful and most affable Boman Irani. Always a joy. Working with him after Waqt,” Amitabh tweeted Wednesday. Boman thanked him for his kind words. “Thanks Mr B for your warm words. Always a pleasure to meet you,” said Boman.

The sequel to Bhootnath is being directed by Nitesh Tiwari and is a co-production of Bhushan Kumar and Abhay Chopra. It is set for release on April 11, next year.
