MUMBAI: Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Goliyon Ki Rasleela Ram Leela has bowled over super star Amitabh Bachchan who has already watched the film thrice.
Still wanting to see the film again, Amitabh praised Bhansali and his cast for making Ram Leela such `a memorable experience for me.’
Writing in his blog, the Big B said, “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.’’
Amitabh added, “I have watched it 3 times over in the last 24 hours and still desire more… I wrote to them and sent them flowers and spoke to some and the delight that it gives me in doing so cannot be explained.’’
Praising what he called `the professionalism of those of this generation,’ Amitabh wrote, “I am in awe of their accomplishments in such short period… the sincerity and the absolute correct note in their early performances is incredible. How they are able to get the tone balance and graph of the characters they play to perfection is a mystery to me, and I shall always laud them for it.
“They are truly the brightest future of cinema in India… and I am filled with pride that I form a small portion of this fraternity.’’
