Helmed by A R Murugadoss, 'Akira' also stars Sonakshi Sinha and will feature Kashyap in a negative role.

"Anurag is amazing in the film. He is a great director and actor. Unfortunately, I don't have any scene with him, but I hope I get a scene with him when he is directing. I am more interested in that. It is one of my dreams to work with him," Amit told media in an interview.

The 'Kai Po Che' star is currently filming the fictional sports-drama 'Saat Kadam', where he will be seen in the role of a football player.

Amit said it was a challenge for him to get the physique of a football player because he had signed the film when he was fat.

'Saat Kadam', scheduled to release mid-year, chronicles the generation gap and the relationship between a father and a son. Directed by Mohit Kumar Jha, the film also stars Ronit Roy and Deeksha Seth.
