MUMBAI -- Megastar Amitabh Bachchan has been signed by director Shoojit Sircar for his next film.

Shoojit and Bachchan worked together in Piku, which was a huge hit. Now, the two are again coming together for a project that would be produced by Shoojit.

"We have signed Amitabh Bachchan for a film that I would be producing. We share a great relationship and it's always an honour to work with him. It is going to be a Delhi-based film," Shoojit told PTI, without divulging much details about the project.

The film will be produced by Shoojit's production house - Rising Sun Films.

"We have locked a script and it will be helmed by a new director Aniruddha Roy Chowdhury," the Vicky Donor director said.

The film will start rolling in February 2016.
