LUNCH WITH BS: R Balki

Hardcore commercial

Shobhana Subramanian  |  Mumbai 

Admen are notorious for being late and the film fraternity never makes it anywhere on time. But perhaps when you're a bit of both, like R Balki is, you change.

The national creative director of for many years now and director of the Amitabh Bachchan and Tabu starrer Cheeni Kum, Balki had decided he wanted to do Lunch with BS at his favourite Konkan Cafe at the TajPresident in Mumbai and was there well before us. And what could two Tamils talk about but Illayaraja, Kamal Haasan and Mani Ratnam, writes Shobhana Subramanian.

It's certainly hot enough for a beer or two and there's reason to celebrate
