Mumbai: Having worked with Mani Ratnam in Raavan, Guru and Yuva, actor Abhishek Bachchan says the ace director is a cinematic genius.

Abhishek, 36, who proved his mettle as an actor with the 2004 hit Yuva after delivering 17 poorly received films, recently read the book titled 'Conversations With Mani Ratnam'.

"I have just finished reading 'Conversations With Mani Ratnam' by Baradwaj Rangan. If you enjoy Cinema, then you must try and get a copy of this book. A great insight into the mind of (someone I consider) a cinematic genius," he tweeted.

Though Abhishek, who was highly praised for his role in Guru, did not get any award for the film, his father Amitabh Bachchan says it is one of the best performances delivered by his son.

"Sat with Abhishek and caught 'Guru" on DD, and still filled with pride on his performance, the film and its making... teary at end! Not a single award came his way for Guru... I console him by saying not a single award came my way for Deewar," Big B tweeted.
