Filmmaker R. Balki had plans of signing Amitabh Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the screen adaptation of book “Half Pants, Full Pants”, but it didn’t materialise.
Sonam Kapoor who earlier shared the news on Twitter was seen at Balki’s office yesterday sealing the deal for Pad Man.

R. Balki says that he doesn’t believe in remaking films.
Writer-director R. Balki, who has worked with megastar Amitabh Bachchan in all his four films, says he would love to work with Shah Rukh and Salman Khan provided he gets the correct idea for them.
Director R. Balki says that “Moondram Pirai”, the original Tamil version of the film “Sadma”, is the “most brilliant film” made in the country.
Filmmaker R. Balki says he would “love” to direct for television, but only if the “idea is big”.
While “Ki and Ka” starring Kareena Kapoor Khan and Arjun Kapoor earned mixed response from critics, the audiences have enjoyed the film and that makes director R. Balki very happy.
R. Balki said, “Amitabh Bachchan is the lucky charm for Bollywood, not for me. He is the lucky charm for the whole industry.”
R. Balki says his new movie “Ki & Ka” is an “imaginary story” as he does not believe in borrowing from real life to show on reel.
Kareena Kapoor revealed that hubby Saif Alia Khan hasn’t watched the film but is already impressed with the concept.
R. Balki says he was disappointed that his last Hindi directorial “Shamitabh” failed to elicit the expected response.
