Farhan Akhtar, who is currently working with one of his favourite actors, Amitabh Bachchan, also wishes to work with Robert De Niro. Akhtar says that while he cannot compare the two legendary actors, he is a huge fan of Bachchan and De Niro is like an idol for him.
I think being a fan of Mr Bachchan and De Niro influenced me and helped me enjoy the acting talent in people and their performance. Who to pit against who? I don۪t know. I think if I had a choice I۪d like to be in a film with De Niro_ De Niro۪s a huge influence, more like my idol. I۪d definitely love to work with him_ He۪s probably one of the reasons I was drawn to what an actor can do, Akhtar said, as quoted by PTI.
Akhtar and Bachchan will be acting together for the first time in Bejoy Nambiar۪s Wazir۪, which also stars Aditi Rao Hydari.
