Kolkata, May 30: He rates Rekha as one of the most talented actresses he has ever worked with and Shatrughan Sinha is reuniting on screen with the evergreen beauty after four decades with 'Aaj Phir Jeene Ki Tamanna Hai'.
"My film with Rekhaji 'Aaj Phir Jeene Ki Tamanna Hai' is slated to come up this year. I have rated her as one of the most talented, beautiful actresses and you will see our chemistry again," Sinha, whose 'Rampur Ka Lakshman' in 1972 with Rekha was a blockbuster, told reporters here.
When asked about his decreasing movie roles, the veteran said, "At this stage I cannot work on just any script.
But this year I have two other films, 'Bodyguard' and 'Aap Jaisa Koi Nahin' lined up for release as well."
Sinha, whose role in ace director Goutam Ghose's 'Antarjali Yatra', about the practice of widow burning in the 18th century, had earned plaudits said that he wants to work in films with similar messages.
"I want to do films with similar messages. I want to work with directors like Goutam again. But I have not been approached again," he said.
Sinha who was here to launch 'Ke Bani Crorepati', a Bhojpuri game show on Mahua TV said "In fact these days while coming to Kolkata, for the game show shoot, I wanted to meet my friend Goutam. But he is also busy with projects and we couldn't meet."
Asked how he divided time between hosting the game show, discharging his duties as a politician and acting in films, Sinha said, "If you are a professional, juggling the responsibilities is not much of a problem. You have to be true to whatever you do and remain punctual."
Asked if such a busy career doesn't affect his responsibility as a father, Sinha quipped, "Can't a father be a film actor."
"At home my daughter (actor Sonakshi Sinha) is a super-guardian for me," the actor of yesteryear hits like 'Khudgarz', 'Kalka', 'Teesri Aankh', 'Naram Garam', 'Naseeb'', 'Shaan', 'Dostana', 'Kala Patthar', 'Bombay To Goa', 'Bhai Ho To Aisa' said.
'Dabangg' star Sonakshi Sinha, Bollywood star Govinda and the Sinha's BJP colleague Yashwant Sinha are slated to be guests on the show which will go on air from June 6. PTI
