While Bhansali’s film continues to receive rave reviews, the desi version of Romeo and Juliet has already found its biggest fan in Big B, wethinks
Superstar Amitabh Bachchan is maha impressed with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela which stars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh. The 71-year-old actor was blown away by DP and Singh’s performances. So much so that not only he ended up watching the love story three times in the same day but he personally congratulated the director and the two lead actors over the phone. Big B even loved Supriya Pathak and Richa Chadda’s act in the SLB’s magnum opus.
He expressed his view about the film on his blog and posted, “”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…”
That’s not all! The Shahenshah of Bollywood believes the next gen of actors have a bright future. “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…” posted Mr Bachchan.
We are sure Bhansali, Deepika, Ranveer and the team of Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram-Leela would be pleased after all such flattering comments coming from a stalwart like Amitabh Bachchan is a big deal, hai na? Coz very rarely do you hear him raving about a film and its star cast!
