On Sunday, Amitabh Bachchan was bestowed with Dadasaheb Phalke Award with the honour by President Ram Nath Kovind at Rashtrapati Bhawan, Delhi. During a recent interview after receiving the award, Big B, who has entertained the audience for 5 decades now, revealed that after his name was announced he doubted if it’s an indication for him to sit and home and relax. To receive one of the highest film honours, the actor was accompanied by his wife and actress Jaya Bachchan and son Abhishek Bachchan. While returning from the capital, Abhishek took to Instagram and shared an in-flight picture with mom and Dadasaheb Phalke Awardee.
Speaking about being honoured with one of the most prestigious awards, Big B told PTI, “When this award was announced, a doubt arose in my mind: if this is an indication for me to sit at home and relax after working for so many years? There is some more work I have to finish and certain possibilities are coming up where I may get a chance to do some work. I just wanted some clarification on this.” “God has been kind, there have been blessings of my parents, the support of the filmmakers, producers, co-actors from the industry, but I'm most indebted to the love and constant encouragement by the Indian audience. That's the reason I'm standing here. I accept this award with utmost humility and gratitude,” he added further.
