Abhishek Bachchan has been chosen by Sanjay Leela Bhansali for his next film, an intense contemporary drama, says a media report.

Amitabh Bachchan worked in Black, wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan worked in Hum...Dil De Chuke Sanam, Devdas and Guzaarish, and now it is Abhishek Bachchan's turn now to work with Bhansali for what is being termed as "an intense human drama taking the protagonist into an area he has never been into before."

Bhansali has been in search of a story idea that would do justice to Abhishek's presence. The filmmaker, who recently worked  with Hrithik Roshan in Guzaarish, has finally cracked an idea that will accommodate Abhishek's talent.

Bhansali said, "I've always felt Abhishek has immense untapped potential. He is an actor capable of surrendering to the camera wholeheartedly. I feel his potential is simmering under the surface. I am going to try to harness it."

The film is not a historical or a period film. The director said, "It is today's subject about contemporary situations and the dilemma that a young individual faces in trying to jump across the hurdles that are placed in his life by the wheels of the government."
