Deepika Padukone, who is currently looking forward to the release of her next big film Happy New Year, has expressed a desire to work with Bang Bang star Hrithik Roshan.

Apart from SRK, Padukone has acted opposite some of the leading heroes of Bollywood such as Ranbir Kapoor, Akshay Kumar and Saif Ali Khan. When asked whom she wants to work with next, the actress replied, "Hrithik is someone I really look forward to working with. People say we would look great together on screen", according to DNA India.

Considering the fact that Roshan does very few films, it could be a while before fans get to see this Bollywood duo on screen together. Or maybe director Ashutosh Gowariker could include her as part of the cast of his upcoming movie with Hrithik Roshan titled Mohenjo Daro.

Roshan will be seen playing the role of a warrior in Gowariker's (Lagaan, Jodha Akbar) next period drama and will undergo special action training to prepare for his role, reports DNA.

"The actor always likes doing a bit of research before starting the shoot of his films and with Mohenjo Daro, it is no different. Although the actor is happy with the response to his previous release Bang Bang, he has not wasted any time and moved on for his next project," states the report.

The film, set in the ancient Indian times of the Mohenjo Daro civilisation, will reportedly have some major, high-octane action sequences.

The film is slated to release around Republic Day in 2016 and also stars actress Pooja Hegde.
