Mumbai, Dec 10 (IANS) Shatrughan Sinha, fondly known as Shotgun, is keen on doing a film with Amitabh Bachchan. The two are said to have discussed various possibilities of coming together, and a project is now being designed for them.

"We haven't worked together since 'Shaan' and 'Kaala Patthar'. It would be really nice to work with him again. He's a good actor and a fine human being," said Shatrughan.

"After my heart surgery, (one of) my first social outing was to his 70th birthday party. I told him I wouldn't have stepped out to such a crowded gathering for anyone else. I broke my golden health rule for a golden human being," he added.

The veteran actor-turned-politician is very impressed by Akshay Kumar.

"He has been very inspiring in his good-health talk. He came here and very humbly told me how important it is to eat sleep and exercise well. I am now on to a different routine altogether. I wake up very early in the morning, go for a long walk.

"I'll be resuming my yoga very soon. Late nights are completely out. Not that I partied late anyway," said the 67-year-old, who underwent surgery earlier this year.

As soon as Shatrughan is back to completely normalcy, he will start a film with Akshay.

"It's a subject that he has been desirous of doing with me for a long time. Akshay came and told me, 'Sir, ab to meri baat maan lijiye (Agree to me now at least)'. I've agreed. But he has laid down a pre-condition. Akshay says our shooting shifts would be 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. I am game," he said.
