''For me, having Mr. Bachchan as my Genius (that's what the Genie is called in ALADIN) was truly a wish come true and I don't think there's anything more to ask for. I was always waiting for an opportunity to work with Big B and when ALADIN happened, I was elated''
Riteish says that ALADIN is a dream role for him as it's a character that everyone loves and each one of us would love to be Aladin and have our wishes fulfilled by a Genie.
Admitting that he's super excited about ALADIN, Riteish says, ''ALADIN has everything from romance to action, comedy & adventure. I've never worked on something like this before.''
ALADIN is arriving at theatres on 30th October 2009.
