Amitabh Bachchan, who has entertained us for years, will finally receive his due as he will be given the Dadasaheb Phalke Award. The announcement has been made by the I & B Minister of India, Prakash Javadekar on Twitter. Last year, it was late Vinod Khanna who was given this prestigious award.
In his tweet, Javadekar wrote, "The legend Amitabh Bachchan who entertained and inspired for 2 generations has been selected unanimously for #DadaSahabPhalke award. The entire country and international community is happy. My heartiest Congratulations to him." The Dadasaheb Phalke Award is India’s highest award in cinema and it is rightly being given to Big B for his glorious contribution to the Indian Cinema over the past few decades.
