Bollywood actor turned Producer John Abraham has expressed his wish to cast superstars like Shahrukh Khan, Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar in his his directorial debut.
John, who forayed into production with one of the greatest hits of 2012, "Vicky Donor", said that he is planning to get into film direction.
Th2 40-year-old actor did not disclose when he would make his directorial debut but said that he would make a good director.
"Not soon, but yes, definitely I will (direct). How do I put it... I think I will do a fairly decent job directing because I feel I have a vision and I would like to get that across," John told IANS.
Hinting that Shah Rukh Khan would be his first preference while directing a movie, John said, "An interesting person to direct... I would love to direct Shah Rukh! (He is) very interesting because there is a side and a facet about him that is very charismatic and I would not like to play on his strengths, but I would like to get something else out."
Apart from Shah Rukh, other actors who were in John's wish list are Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar. "Aamir (Khan) directs himself, so that's interesting about Aamir. Each one is different and probably if I am doing a fun film, may be Akshay Kumar. But I am not thinking about it right now, so it's completely hypothetical. I may (also) direct newcomers."
Romantic comedy "Vicky Donor" was the first commercial movie produced by John Abraham under his production company JA (John Abraham) Entertainment Pvt Ltd. The movie starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Yami Gautam and Annu Kapoor was a huge hit.
