Filmmaker Rohit Shetty who is working with National Award-winning Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar in his upcoming directorial venture titled Sooryavanshi says working with him is an achievement.

During an interactive session at the 20th edition of FICCI FRAMES, the global media, and entertainment conclave on Tuesday, Rohit said, "I did few body doubles for Akshay in the film Suhaag and of course, we had a long association. We kept meeting. When I was shooting for the television show Khatron Ke Khiladi we met."

"He started the show, I am hosting the show. Yes, we have respect for each other. Now that we are making a film together, I feel a sense of achievement," he said.

Recalling his early days, he said, "I think it was my third film when I met him almost 27 years ago for Suhaag. Since then until now, the amount of dedication they have, their experience of 30 years in the industry, has given me an opportunity to learn when I am working with them. Whether it is Salman (Khan), Ajay (Devgn) and Akshay, they have survived in the industry for so long."

When Rohit, known for films like Singham, Simmba based on the journey of a policeman, was asked if he wanted to make a film on a female police officer, he said, "Yes, I will surely make a film on a female police officer."

"I have a story in mind and I will make it, but do not want to say who would be the suitable actress considering people will start calling me from tomorrow and my life will be difficult," he laughed.
