South Indian Super Stars are the best: Big B
Mumbai: Big B Amitabh Bachchan who recently shot an ad for a jewellery brand along with South’s star actors Prabhu, Nagarjuna and Shiva says he was bowled by their humility. While Tamil actor Prabhu is son of Star actor late Chevalier Sivaji Ganesan, Nagarjuna son of ANR and Kannada Star Sudeep son of Raj Kumar who happens to be Big B Amitabh and Dileep, all of them teamed with Big B for the ad campaign. He says he is in awe with their humbleness and generosity.
Amitabh on his blog tweeted, “I have had the great honour and pleasure to have worked today with some of the popular and distinguished stars of the southern region of our country – Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Kerala – who have been not just colleagues of our vast film industry, but have through the years been close friends.” He went on to add, “Despite the fact that their fan following and popularity is immense and earth shattering, they are by temperament such disciplined, gracious and humble beings, that it would not be possible to imagine their status and their standing if you were to meet them.”
He lavished praises on Southern stars saying, “Indeed I have always found the Southern stars to be all of such standing, irrespective of their god-like stature at home among their well wishers,” Amitabh said that SFI is more creative and innovative. He infact starred with Malayalam Superstar Mohan Lal’s ‘Khandhar’. He said, “I have also never shied away from the fact that the South film industry is greatly more talented with fresh and innovative ideas and creative thought than their counterparts in the North. Working among them, in their climate of proficiency and talent is a delight and an unmitigated honour.”
