Filmmaker R. Balakrishnan aka Balki, who presented Amitabh Bachchan in unimaginable roles in "Cheeni Kum" and "Paa", is gearing up to explore one more side of the megastar in his next, which is expected to go on the floors by the end of the year.
"I am writing a film with Amitji. It will explore one more side of Amitji. He is my dream actor, so I wouldn't do anything that I wouldn't want to see about him," Balki told IANS.
"I can't talk much about the film right now. It's too early," he added.
Asked about the shooting of the film, Balki said: "Hopefully, by the end of this year we will start the film. We will be shooting the entire film in India."
There were reports that Big B is not taking too many projects post his surgery, but Balki cleared it saying, "He is absolutely fine."
My daughter is a born actress, Viday's dad
Actress Vidya Balan's father says he was quite impressed with his daughter's performance in "The Dirty Picture" (TDP) and felt that she is a born actress.
"I sent her the message on 26 Nov, 2011, 'bold and beautiful, fantastic, you are a born actress. A new actress will be born again on 2 Dec 2011. An actor par excellence. I am proud of you I did not find anything vulgar in TDP.'" Vidya's father P. R. Balan told reporters here at an event.
Released last year, TDP was an unofficial biopic of southern sex symbol Silk Smitha and in the film Vidya played the role. Both critics and viewers liked it.
Balan said he knew the film will be a super hit.
"Gracefully directed by Milan Luthria, it will definitely be a super hit and I am an astrologist now. Second half is yet to be seen and I am sure it will be better than the first. God bless you my child. You are really bold and beautiful," he said.
