With the announcement of the veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan being conferred with the Dadasaheb Phalke Award, the entire Bollywood took to social media to wish the star. As the actor will soon be awarded the prestigious award, the actor feels he is not worthy for the same. Expressing his feelings after the announcement of the award, Amitabh Bachchan took to his blog to explain how he feels he is ‘not worthy’ of the award.

Amitabh Bachchan took to his blog and poured his heart out after the love and appreciation he received. According to a report in HT, the actor in his blog wrote how from the moment of the declaration of the award, it has been overwhelming and has been most humbling. The actor added how it numbs one into the block of ice that has been kept away from the warmth of its melting for ages and explained how one feels cold, dry and blocked on its happening. The actors then added that he succumbed to it and begin to acknowledge its presence and worth of its delivery.

Sr. Bachchan also wrote how he cannot deny the fact that it leads him to the stage of embarrassment, particularly when you consider yourself not worthy of it at all. He added that or perhaps a mistake made by them that decided on it. The actor also said that such awards draws the attention and puts you in the constant glare of recognition. Amitabh Bachchan added, “a condition we as actors work assiduously for our entire lives -- and when it does come, make all possible gadgetry to avoid it... Glares for the eyes, dark tinted windows, guarded movements to places of natural destination and on.” The actor finally concluded his blog post by saying that for the moment though, it is folded hands and extreme humility.
