Sharing his desire, Mishra told IANS: "I would love to work with stars and I want to work with Saif Ali Khan and Aamir Khan."
"If there is a star and correct casting, then it obviously increase the business. In today's cinema scenario, if you have extreme engaging script, even that works. And if you don't have star in your film, you better make a really very good film," added the filmmaker.
He has just wrapped up his next directorial venture "Inkaar" that stars mainstream hero Arjun Rampal along with Chitrangada Singh, whom Mishra introduced with his 2005 release "Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi".
He has fulfilled his desire to work with a star by teaming up with megastar Amitabh Bachchan in "Mehrunnisa", but refuses to disclose details about the movie.
"I waited for 15 years to do 'Mehrunnisa' with Amitabhji. I don't have a right to talk about the film now. There will be an interesting announcement regarding this," said Mishra, known for directing films like "Dharavi" and "Chameli".
His "Inkaar", which marks his changing style, is about sexual harassment at work place and is slated for a Jan 18 release.
