R. Balki

Filmmaker R. Balakrishnan aka Balki says he is impressed with the way his wife Gauri Shinde uses real emotions to convey a message through her films.


The director also feels his wife is one of the finest filmmakers in India.

“She is very good and sensitive. She is one of the finest filmmakers in our country because her sensitivity is very real it comes from real life,” he said.

Gauri’s directorial debut with Sridevi-starrer “English Vinglish” garnered plaudits from every quarters for telling story of a housewife, who doesn’t know English and how an overseas trip helps her to bring out the best in her.

Meanwhile, Balki’s “Shamitabh”, which released Feb 6, was appreciated by the critics for its original plot and charm of the actors — Amitabh Bachchan, Dhanush and debutante Akshara Haasan – in the three principal characters.
