Amitabh: I'm trying to improve

Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan SathiyoAfter Gadar: Ek Prem Katha and The Hero, Director Anil Sharma'snext big budget film, Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Saathiyo,willrelease onDecember 3.

The film has a big star castwith Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Bobby Deol, Sandhali Sharma, Ashutosh Rana and newcomers Kapil Sharma and Divya Khosla. The music is by Anu Malik.

Says Divya, "It's a love towards one's country kind of film; it's a film on Indian values, Indian culture, Indian traditions. The look of the film is Rajasthani and Punjabi. I play the Rajasthani girl."

"It's an intense love story between Akshay, me, and Bobby Deol," she adds. "I play a girl torn between two people out of circumstances."

What was it like acting with Bachchan, she added, "When I asked Amitji how I should improve my acting skills, he replied, 'I am still learning; I am still trying to improve' and that's being too modest!"

While shooting for the film, Akshay Kumar met young fan Puran Chauhan, who lost his leg at the age of five. A touched Akshay recommended him to Sharma, who gave him a small role in the film.

Bobby has a double role in the film, that of a father and son. Anil Sharma has always been very loyal to the Deols -- he made Hukumat and Elan-E-Jung with Dharmendra; and Gadar and Hero with Sunny. This is his first film with Bobby.
