R Balki on Amitabh Bachchan's win

Filmmaker R Balki says megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who won his fourth National award today for ‘Piku,’ is a stupendous performer.

Balki has worked with the 73-year-old actor in films including ‘Cheeni Kum,’ ‘Paa,’ ‘Shamitabh,’ and yet-to-be-released ‘Ki & Ka’.

“I think nobody can be more proud of him (Amitabh Bachchan) more than me. Proud is an understatement. He deserves a lot more. He is a stupendous actor and far bigger than all of us,” Balki told PTI.

In ‘Piku,’ the veteran actor played a hypochondriac father of an independent girl played by Deepika Padukone.

Directed by Shoojit Sircar, the road drama also received an award for best original screenplay and dialogue.

In ‘Ki & Ka,’ Bachchan makes a special appearance with his wife Jaya and according to the filmmaker, it is the best role he has written for his favourite star.

“The role I have written for Amit ji in ‘Ki & Ka’ is the best for him so far. I have a great working relationship with him and I know how to bring the best out of him as an artist,” he said.
