The “Shahenshah” of Bollywood Mr. Amitabh Bachchan is not going to retire from movies any soon. The 77-year-old actor received the prestigious Dada Saheb Phalke from President Ram Nath Kovind at the Rashtrapati Bhavan yesterday. Known as “Big B” has been honored with the award comprising a Golden Lotus and a cash prize of Rs 10 lakh for his outstanding contribution to the film industry. He was accompanied by wife Jaya Bachchan and son Abhishek Bachchan in the event.
The legendary artist said – As the awards got announced I was skeptical as these might be an indication that its time for me to sit back at home and relax after working for so many years, but I have to finish and certain possibilities are coming up where I may get a chance to do some work.
