Mr. Bachachan had to regretfully skip the National Film Awards ceremony due to health issues. He received the award from the President at Rashtrapati Bhawan. Amitabh said, on receiving the honour, “Jab is purskar ki ghoshna hui to mere man me ek sandeh utha ki kya kahin ye sanket hai mere liye ki bhai sahab aapne bahut kaam kar liya, ab ghar baith ke aaram kar lijiye. Kyunki abhi bhi thoda kaam baaki hai jise mujhe pooja karna hai.”
Big B will be soon entertaining us with his upcoming movies like Gulabo Sitabo, Chehre, and Jhund. Megastar Mr. Bachchan is four times the winner of National Awards for Agnipath, Black, Paa, and Piku. His enthusiasm has inspired many actors and his fans as well. He is a living legend and the ultimate source of motivation for more than two generations.
