"I am very fortunate that we have worked together for many years, did 13 to 14 films together. We even started our career together, and today he has carved a niche for himself and (is) doing amazing," he added.
A tribute to the Big B was paid at the event as singers crooned some of his hit songs.
Asked about the new generation of music directors and songwriters, Akhtar said: "Young music directors are very talented and capable of doing any kind of work and the challenge they will get."
