"Amitji, your letter is like an award for me. Thank you and thank you Jaya aunty," Amit wrote on Instagram along with a shot of the letter.

According to the director, Big B's gesture will motivate him to work even harder.

"I have always been a huge fan of Bachchan Saab and when I received flowers from him once again, I was completely speechless. I still don't know how to thank him. Such gestures motivate me to work even harder and earn my next bouquet and letter from him," he added.
