Amit Sharma

The  Badhaai Ho director who is now immersed in completing his   big  football drama  Maidaan with Ajay Devgan,  will next direct  a  Hindi remake   of  the Robert De Niro-Anne Hathaway 2015 romcom The  Intern about a 70-year old man seeking a job  after retirement  in a company run by a very successful  young woman entrepreneur.

Says Amit, “It’s too early to talk about The Intern. Right now  I’m completely into  MaidaanWe’ve  just completed one schedule with footballers from Thailand. And we move on to the  next match in a few days.”

 In  the meanwhile the  screenplay of The Intern is being adapted .

About  working with the dream team  of Amitabh Bachchan and Deepika Padukone Amit sighs,  “I can’t believe I’m working with two of the best we have , so early  in my career. It is every director’s dream  to  work with  Bachchan Saab. My dream  has come true  after directing  only three  films. What more can I ask for?”
