This weekend sees the opening of ��Housefull 3�۪, starring Akshay Kumar, Abhishek Bachchan and Riteish Deshmukh. Bachchan has made quite a few movies in the comedy genre and they have suited him well, and he’s now spoken about the next step.

In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, Bachchan was asked what was next after ��Housefull 3�۪. He replied,�����I don’t know. It is a bit scary. It is the first time in my career that I don’t know… So we have got 2-3 scripts that we are trying to work on. Just want to do the right one next. It is also time to move on from comedy. My last 2-3 films have been comedy which I have enjoyed doing thoroughly. But not I am ready to explore something different. I would love to revisit comedy, but for now want to do something different. Just working on tweaking a script to get it right. Have to make something special, something in which I can sink my teeth into�۝.

Bachchan as we know is a huge sporting fan, so when asked if there was anything on the cards for him to make a sporting film, Bachchan said, ���You know I would love to. It is one of my favourite genres to watch. If you ever need some motivation, then you should watch sports film. I feel the triumph of human spirit can never go wrong. But the thing we have to understand is, a sport film isn’t about the sport. It has to be the backdrop. If you see Lagaan, it isn’t about Cricket. It is about a village trying to avoid tax. Bhaag Milkha Bhaag isn’t about Milkha Singh ji as a runner. It is his personal journey. There has to be a human angle to it. I would LOVE to make a sports film because it is a wonderful genre which we haven’t really exploited in India and if made correctly, it will be amazing.�۝
