After successfully directing two films, CHEENI KUM and PAA, both starring Amitabh Bachchan, Balki now wants the megastar to try something very different and diverse, though not exactly unique. The director was addressing the media at IIM Lucknow and talking about the effects of advisements and ad films in general.
The man behind super successful ads like Surf Excel 'Daag Achche Hain', Tata Tea 'Jaago Re' and Idea's 'Walk And Talk', not only spoke about advertisements but also his second passion, films, and his favourite star Amitabh Bachchan. When we asked him about one role in which he would like to see Amitabh, Balki was quick to reply, "It is my wish to see Amitabh Bachchan essaying the role of a cricket commentator in one of my films. I want to see and hear him doing commentary because in my opinion, coming from Amitabh it is something that he would excel at."
Well, definitely this is one role that not only Balki but also the audience, especially Amitabh's fans would want to materialize in a film as no one can forget his excellent rendition of the hilarious cricket commentary scene in NAMAK HALAL, which had the public laughing their heads off.
