Amitabh Bachchan receives the Dada Saheb Phalke Prize in New Delhi

Amitabh Bachchan is an institution. From the start, he redefined the Indian hero with his textured characters and revolutionized the concept of the “hero”. The expression “angry young man” was coined to him. To this day, even after five decades, Amitabh Bachchan is a brand that delights box office magic.

Honoring his unprecedented contribution to crafts, he received the prestigious Dada Saheb Phalke award today in the capital. President Ram Nath Kovind conferred this honor on him. Also present at the ceremony were son Abhishek Bachchan and his wife Jaya Bachchan.

Upon receiving this honor, the legendary actor said: “Jab iss puruskar ki ghoshna hui to simple mann mein ek sandeh utha. Ki kya kahin ye sanket hai simple liye ki bhai sahab aapne bahut kaam kar liya, ab ghar baith ke aaram kar lijiye. Kyunki abhi bhi thoda kaam baki hai jise mujhe poora karna hai. “

Generating a wave of laughter, the Big B concluded that it still had a long way to go.
