Filmmaker R. Balki, whose last release was SHAMITABH, said that he finds the works of late filmmaker Manmohan Desai inspiring.

”As a director, I think Manmohan Desai did the best films. He was a genius! Whatever he did, nobody can do it today. All his films were so original … I would love to be (like) Manmohan Desai,” said Balki.
Desai is best remembered for movies like BLUFF MASTER, COOLIE, NASEEB and AMAR AKBAR ANTHONY, and he has worked a lot with Amitabh Bachchan.
Balki too has worked with Big B in three of his films — CHEENI KUM, PAA and now SHAMITABH. He says the megastar is only ‘getting younger everyday’.
”How much he has earned in this industry … at 72, he has so much power. Time moves on, but the power of (Amitabh) Bachchan will never go,” he said. [IANS]
