Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who had extended his stay in the national capital for the screening of “Margarita With A Straw”, has appreciated Shonali Bose for making such a “brave original film”. The 72-year-old was honoured with Padma Vibhushan – India’s second highest civilian honour that President Pranab Mukherjee conferred on him at a ceremony at Rashtrapati Bhavan on Wednesday.
“A screening of ‘Margarita with a Straw’…sensitive well performed and brave original film…Shunali Bose, :)))),” Big B tweeted. Directed by Bose, “Margarita With A Straw” features Kalki Koechlin who plays a victim of cerebral palsy . The film also stars Revathi and is set to release on April 17.
This is not the first time the megastar has gone on a social media platform to appreciate young talent. He had earlier sent a hand-written note to actor Ayushmann Khurrana for his role in “Dum Laga Ke Haisha.” “Even if I had not met you at the HT Style Awards, this note would still have been on its way. I enjoyed your performance in ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha'”, the note read. (IANS)
