Mumbai, March 5 (IANS) In Vivek Sharma's "Bhootnath", Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan plays a friendly ghost to child actor Aman Siddiqui.

The two have bonded well on the sets.

"Aman is an absolute darling. I've done several ads with him. We earlier did a film together. In 'Eklavya - The Royal Guard', he had played junior Saif Ali Khan," Amitabh told IANS.

Over the past few years, Amitabh has made a habit of working with talented children. Ayesha Kapoor in "Black", Rucha Vaidya in "Ek Ajnabee" and Sweeni Khare in "Cheeni Kum" were the three child actors who shared significant screen space with Big B.

While "Black" featured him as a teacher, "Ek Ajnabee" saw him as an unsmiling and no-nonsense body
