Amitabh Bachchan 80th Birthday EXCLUSIVE: R Balki says the actor never aged for him: He’s still the same

R Balki has directed six feature films, all of which featured Amitabh Bachchan, either in a full-length role or in a cameo role. Now, on Big B’s 80th birthday, the filmmaker opens up about his admiration for the superstar actor and his first meeting with him. “It was for a publicity shoot. This was the first advertising campaign after his return, and I met him for the first time, ”recalls Balki.

And he adds: “I remember that I narrated the script of the commercial and there was no response from him. It was a funny script, and I wondered why there was no reaction. So I looked at him and he had this poker face. Normally when you narrate something to Bachchan, you speak in Bachchan’s voice, and I realized that I was doing it in front of him (laughs). He just looked at me, he had a smile on his face and I was so embarrassed. That was my first meeting with him.”

Bachchan has played leading roles in Balki’s Cheeni Kum, Paa, and Shamitabh, and has made guest appearances in Ki & Ka, Pad Man, and Chup. “He has been very nice, and I have never had to persuade him. He saw the strengths of the role, and I’ve been lucky to have shot those sequences because all of those sequences are an integral part of the movie. I can’t imagine Ki & Ka without Amit ji and Jaya (Bachchan) ji’s scenes, or I can’t imagine Chup and English Vinglish (producer) without their scenes. Those were important scenes, and I’ve been lucky enough to have said yes,” shares R Balki.

On Amitabh Bachchan’s 80th birthday, Balki says: ‘I always tell him: ‘You’re pretending to be 80, show me proof of your age.’ I can’t believe you’re 80. You’re not 80.’ He never grew old for me. He remains the same, he will always be the same and the energy of him is the same. The happiness that he gives us, I think very few people are capable of. ,
