KB moulded me: Kamal

Everyone knows the rapport shared between Kamal Haasan and veteran filmmaker K Balachander. The two had teamed up to render many hits and in three decades many a blockbusters were made by them in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi.

Kamal Haasan has claimed that Balachander mentored and perfected him, so he attributes his success and talent to his guru. Kamal made this statement after felicitating Balachander at an awards function.

‘We came without any acting knowledge but K.B. Sir moulded and sculpted us, and taught us about cinema. I am proud to be able to felicitate him,’ said the actor.

Balachander was recently honoured with Dada Saheb Phalke award.
