"There are actors and there are actors and there is Dilip Kumar”

Amitabh Bachchan is overjoyed after receiving praise from Dilip Kumar.

"There are actors and there are actors and there is Dilip Kumar, Dilip Saheb, Yusuf Khan! From the moment I saw him in a film, I knew he was the ultimate inspiration for me.

Today he posted a generous comment on me on his Twitter account, and I have nothing more to say but this -- I do not care for any comment from any critic, colleague," the 69-year-old posted on his blog.

"I do not care for any opinion from anyone. This below is the the most endearing and lasting endorsement that any actor could receive. I feel today after 42 years in the Industry, that there is a fulfilment of thought and value.

Nothing greater could have been asked for, nor received. I believed in a man who to me represented the ultimate. He was he is and he shall always be, The Dilip Kumar," he further stated.

Dilip Kumar sent an open letter to Amitahb appreciated performances in the movies like "Black" and "Paa".

Dilip Kumar wrote: "With tears of pride in her eyes Saira handed over the print out of your (Big B) eloquent tribute to my work (Dilip Kumar) in your blog. I read it once, then again and again...

"...I am certainly privileged to know from your affectionate compliments that someone as knowledgeable and competent as you has liked my work.

Yes, now that you have reminded me, I can recall the scenes that brought us together before the cameras for  Shakti . I should say the respect and admiration are mutual.

Not just  Shakti , your work in several films I have watched has been world class and inimitable.

"In recent times, I can remember  Black  and, if I remember right, Saira and I were at a loss for words at the premiere night, after the curtain came down, to express our myriad feelings of admiration for your outstanding performance.

It is a pity the film missed the Oscar nomination. If any Indian actor, in my personal opinion, deserves the world s most coveted award, it is you.
