Shah Rukh Khan feels that Amitabh Bachchan's upcoming horror-comedy 'Bhootnath Returns' will go on to become one of the greatest hits of the year.

Bachchan, 71, took to his blog to share how touched he was by SRK's unexpected praise about his film, which is the sequel to 2008's 'Bhootnath'.

"It was really sweet of Shah Rukh to state quite unexpectedly as he arrived on the sets of 'Bhootnath', that this film would be one of the three biggest hits of the year .. aapke muh mein ghee shakkar, laddo peda sab kuch (May your words come true)," Bachchan posted. Shah Rukh also has a guest appearance in the film.

Besides Bachchan, 'Bhootnath Returns' will also star Usha Jadhav and Boman Irani, who plays the main antagonist in the film.
