It's no less than an achievement to receive some words of praises from someone so majestic like Amitabh Bachchan. It's surely not easy to impress the Big B, but actress Deepika Padukone seems to have won the megastar's heart, through her marvellous performance in Ram Leela. Reportedly, Mr Bachchan has sent a letter and a bouquet of flowers to Dippy, as a token of appreciation.
A while ago, Amitabh Bachchan admitted that he loved Ram
Leela, and ended up watching the film thrice in a day. The
71-year-old actor also spoke to the director and lead - Deepika
Padukone and Ranveer Singh - over phone and congratulated them on
their performances in the film. Following this, the Big B sent
Deepika a personalized note along with her favourite flowers. The
actress in return was overwhelmed with the megastar's gesture and
reportedly considers this as the best compliment ever.
Big B watches Ram
Amitabh Bachchan was so happy after watching Ram Leela,
that he went a step further to shower praises on the film in his
blog. "There is a certain joy in acknowledging the accomplishments
of another... I did so today for Ram-Leela, the film and its
glorious cast and crew... With Sanjay Leela Bhansali, with Deepika
and Ranveer and Supriya and Richa... All that have made this film a
most memorable experience for me.. I have watched it 3 times over
in the last 24 hours and still desire more... Those late hours that
you have been noticing on timelines of this extraordinary medium,
is so because of this most enjoyable activity of mine... So I wrote
to them and sent them flowers and spoke to some and the delight
that it gives me in doing so cannot be explained...," Bachchan
posted on his blog.
Bachchan, who has worked with Bhansali in Black, said
he is happy with the future generation of Bollywood. "I relish the
professionalism of those of this generation ... I am in awe of
their accomplishments in such short period ... the sincerity and
the absolute correct note in their early performances is
incredible... How they are able to get the tone, balance and graph
of the characters they play to perfection is a mystery to me, and I
shall always laud them for it... They are truly the brightest
future of cinema in India.. And I am filled with pride that I form
a small portion of this fraternity..."
