'English Vinglish' left me with lumps in my throat: Amitabh Bachchan

Added by harini on Sep 24, 2012

Veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan, who has a blink and miss cameo in Sridevi’s comeback movie ‘English Vinglish, said that debutant director Gauri Shinde’s beautiful narrative style had left ‘lumps in his throat’.

“A viewing of ‘English Vinglish’ directed by Gauri Shinde, wife of R. Balki, leaves me with collective lumps in the throat and a surge of flushed eyes near the tear ducts. And it is not all the emotion of a particular moment that puts one in such state. It is the uncontrollable effect of appreciation that prevents one from expressing any at all,” wrote Amitabh Bachchan in his blog.

“In our simplicity lies the true story of a lifetime. Massive explosions and devastating action sequences make you wonder in high adrenalin awe. But equally, the ordinariness of everyday life, strikes many strings that work together in sympathetic chords. It is complex and most difficult to be weathered in by simplistic endeavor,” he added.

The actor, who recently praised ‘Barfi’ and the acting performances of all the lead actors in the movie, said that he was surprised by the creative talent that has emerged over 100 years in Indian cinema.

“The revelation of immense creative talent in this 100 years of Indian Cinema, surprises me with each passing day. The verve and vigor and enthusiasm of the myriad hopefuls in this elaborate and exceedingly competitive profession, is to be seen and experienced," he said.

"What wonderful times we live in. How compelling it has become to view each new and fresh concept with wonder and awe, and how frustrating to not be today among the calibre of those that are designing the rules of the game!!" he concluded.
