Shamitabh, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Dhanush, is set to release on February 6

"I don't know if I have done enough work to deserve to be working with Mr Bachchan," said Dhanush

Actor Dhanush, who will be seen in Shamitabh, on Tuesday said he is ready to experiment with roles in Bollywood as he has nothing to lose here.

Asked why he was doing unconventional roles in Bollywood as opposed to his larger-than-life roles in the southern film industry, Dhanush said "I have been trying to mix my characters as much as possible down south. There, one image is stuck, so I am restricted.

Here in Bollywood, I have nothing to lose. So, I experiment with my characters. I am thankful to Balki who has given me this film. I don't have anything to lose here.

It's an amazing experience to work with Amitabh. I don't know if I have done enough work to deserve to be working with Mr Bachchan. God has blessed me with this film," he added.

Actor Kamal Haasan's daughter Akshara Haasan will be making her Bollywood debut with Shamitabh.

Talking about her experience of working with Big B and Dhanush, she said: "I really look up to Amitabh Bachchan and Dhanush but when we got on the sets, they made me feel very comfortable, they made things easier for me."
