Mumbai: After barbs, megastar Amitabh Bachchan received praise from filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma (RGV) who credited Big B for his entry into filmdom.

Big B and RGV worked together in films like `Sarkar`, `Sarkar Raj`, `Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag`, `Department` and `Nishabd`.

But relations between the two soured when RGV posted some negative comments on Big B`s performance in 2011 movie `Bbuddah... Hoga Terra Baap`.

On Sunday Varma tried to patch up by inviting the megastar to the launch of his movie `Satya 2` and Big B obliged him.

On his blog Big B mentioned his visit to the event and even uploaded pictures.

"...a quick visit to a `party` organised by Ram Gopal Verma, which has to be historic in concept because he never goes to one and never gives one … but he wanted me to be present for the introduction of his new film `Satya 2`," Big B posted.

"Ramu in the meanwhile chose the occasion to give a history of his reason to enter films and credited it to me. Which was quite a moment as can be seen in the pictures," he added.

`Satya 2` stars newcomers Puneet Singh, Anaika Soti and Aradhna.

Big B praised the cast.

"May I say it was most impressive. An entire new cast and an entire new thought on the story ... all the young talent looked and were seen to be doing well. I wish them all success," he posted.

`Satya 2` releases Oct 25.
