Navdeep and the 27-year-old actress worked together in "NH 10" that marked the debut of Anushka as a producer in the Hindi filmdom.
"Definitely she (Anushka) will be part of one of the two projects that I am working on. I am talking to her for the project that she is going to produce. I can't talk much about which that project is going to be," Navdeep told PTI.
The "Manorama Six Feet Under" helmer feels Anushka has not been explored as an actor.
"Anushka is very natural and versatile actor. She has done a great job as an actress. But she hasn't been explored enough as an actress. It was a great experience working with her," he said.
The two films that Navdeep is working on are "Kaneda" and a thriller, whose title is yet to be finalised.
Talking about "Kaneda" the director says, "It is one of the two films that I am working on. We are talking to actors.
It is not a comedy... it is about Punjabi gangsters in Vancouver. The other project that we are working on is a thriller. It is an original film."
The makers of "Kaneda" are talking to actors but Navdeep is not keen to divulge any details as it too premature to reveal anything.
Ask him if "Kaneda" is the film that will have Anushka, he says, "The discussions are still going on. I can't talk about it."
