Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan recently watched Vishal Bharadwaj’s latest directorial “Haider” and has only good words to say about the adaptation of William Shakespeare's “Hamlet”.

“When you see good products each Friday of the week, I can only marvel at the stupendous talent that emanates from our shores and within the creative arts. 

“It is a personal joy for me and one that I view with great envy. My own works do not compare with their’s and there is a wish always to be in their shoes to experience the thrills of being an element in what they produce,” he wrote.
