Amitabh’s compliment for Madhur Bhandarkar

Amitabh Bachchan, the legendary actor of Indian Cinema has made a great compliment for the director Mdhur Bhandarkar. In front of a packed audience Big B said that Bhandarkar is the new age Hrishikesh Mukherjee. It was last Saturday. Amitabh Bachchan felicitated Madhur Bhandarkar as the best contemporary film director. In a ceremony organized by 'Spandan Art', Big B presented the title in the form of a Memento to Madhur for winning the National Award for Best Director for his film Traffic Signal. This is his third National Award after Chandni Bar and Page 3.

What’s Bhandarkar’s reaction after Big B’s compliment on him? "What can I really say about appreciation like this and that too from a person of the stature of Big B", says Bhandarkar who is still trying to come to terms with the comment made by Amitabh Bachchan.

"I have grown on his films. Anari, Anupama, Satyakam, Guddi, Anand, Bawarchi, Namak Haram, and Golmaal - just look at the kind of films he has made over the years. There are so many genres that he touched upon; the list is endless." Bhanadarkar said.

While talking he got emotional and said "As a kid I used to watch Hrishikesh Mukherjee films in my video library. His films inspired me as they spoke about real issues and treaded a real path while being commercial and entertaining. Though I am still learning over the years, I try to be inspired by great filmmakers like him. I hope a few decades down the line, I get the same kind of love, affection and recognition as greats like Hrishikesh Mukherjee get more than 50 years after making their first film”.

Amitabh Bachchan in his early stage of bollywood career he worked with Hrishikesh Mukherjee in several films like Anand, Mili, Abhimaan, Namak Haraam, Jurmana and Chupke Chupke.

Madhu Bhandarkar is really a good director. I have seen his movies like chandni bar and page 3. Those are magnificent creativity. Every character was superb and done their best Obviously, Madhu Bhandarkar deserves for the compliment of Big B. I wish him all the best.

Yes, at this time madhur bhandarkar is recognized as one of the most talented film director in bollywood. He is well known for making unusual but sensual movies since his early days as a director.
But I don’t think it is fair to compare him with legendary director Rishikesh Mukherjee. He is like a god father of Hindi cinema and Madhur has passed just few years in this industry
