Mumbai, Nov 17 (IANS) Paresh Rawal says that he will feature in one of the lead roles in 'Boom' director Kaizad Gustad's next and that it will also star Sanjay Dutt and Naseeruddin Shah.
'Yes, in principle I've agreed to be in Kaizad's film with Sanjay and Naseer. I've worked with Sanjay before. And it's always a pleasure to work with Naseer who is my favourite,' Paresh told IANS.
'But more than the cast it's the script that I found exciting. Kaizad's film has a very strong element of human drama. At this stage of my career I need roles which challenge me as an actor,' he added.
Kaizad is said to be strapped for a producer, but Paresh says the project is on.
'I think he's getting the producer in place,' said Paresh who is getting ready for the release of 'De Dana Dan'.
He admits the roles that he relishes are rare nowadays. 'I need new challenges. And what's being offered to me isn't challenging me.'
According to a source, Sanjay feels a strong sense of empathy for Kaizad who has been embroiled in a legal battle for a while. He has assured Kaizad that he will either produce the film himself or get a producer.ALSO READ: 'Welcome to the Jungle' :Bollywood's biggest ensemble star cast unites for acapella extravaganza
