Actor Amitabh Bachchan has called director K Bhagyaraj, who has completed 40 years in cinema, a prolific personality in the Tamil region.

Bachchan, who has worked under the directorship of Bhagyaraj in the 1986 film Aakhree Raasta, took to his blog to praise the filmmaker-actor.

"A message to that prolific personality in the Tamil region K. Bhagyaraj, a prolific director, producer actor, music director editor of a weekly — turning 40 years of his service to cinema. He directed Aakhri Raasta [sic]," Bachchan wrote.

The 76-year-old thespian said the Aakhree Raasta was a memorable film for him.

"(It) was as a remake of a Tamil film, but one that I enjoyed being a part of," he added.

Currently, Bachchan is gearing up for his next Brahmastra, a fantasy thriller film directed by Ayan Mukerji. The film also stars Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor.
