Filmmaker Shekhar Kapur has reacted to director R Balki’s latest comments on the acting chops of actor Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor. In an interview with Hindustan Times, Balki had asked people to ‘find him better actors’ that the two. Shekhar, however, has disagreed with his stand.
“Have huge respect for you, Balki. But i just saw Kai Po Che again last night. Three new young actors at that time. And stunning believable performances by each,” Shekhar wrote in a tweet. He also appreciated the actors who come from the theatre background. “Best actors today are coming from theatre. Theres new found respect for them. And confidence. I’ve worked with Naseer, Shabana,Satish Kaushik, Seema Biswas and entire cast of Bandit Queen, Cate Blanchett, Geoffrey Rush, Heath Ledger Daniel Craig Eddy Redmayne. All are from theatre,” he added in another tweet.
