"By end of January, few films will start and hopefully by the end of this year, you will see me on screen," the 70-year-old said here Tuesday at the first look launch of the film "Jolly L.L.B.".
He was seen in guest appearances in "Bol Bachchan" and "English Vinglish", and says he wanted to go a bit slow post his abdominal surgery in February 2012.
"I did not keep much work for me in between because of my surgery. There was only KBC ('Kaun Banega Crorepati 6') and it will also end in a few days. After that I will start with the films," he added.
Among his films lined up for release is Prakash Jha's "Satyagraha - Democracy Under Fire". He will also be seen in Hollywood film "The Great Gatsby".
