Balki has worked with the 73-year-old actor in films including 'Cheeni Kum,' 'Paa,' 'Shamitabh,' and yet-to-be-released 'Ki & Ka'.

"I think nobody can be more proud of him (Amitabh Bachchan) more than me. Proud is an understatement. He deserves a lot more. He is a stupendous actor and far bigger than all of us," Balki told media.

In 'Piku,' the veteran actor played a hypochondriac father of an independent girl played by Deepika Padukone. Directed by Shoojit Sircar, the road drama also received award for best original screenplay and dialogue.
