Bollywood Shahensha Amitabh Bachchan was honoured with Indian Film Personality of The Year Award at the closing ceremony of International Film Festival of India (IFFI). The award was presented to Mr. Bachchan by Akshay Kumar and Union Minister of Information and Broadcasting Smriti Irani.
Before handing over the award, Akshay Kumar who has worked with Amitabh Bachchan in quite a few films spoke about the greatness of the legendry Big B. Akshay went on to say that while America has Batman and Superman, India has ‘Angry Young Man’ i.e. Mr. Bachchan.
Akki went on to say that Mr. Bachchan has played his father on screen several times and he has taught all the actors of his generation so much, so in order to thank Big B from the bottom of his heart Akshay touched Big B’s feet as a gesture of respect while Big B refrained him from doing so and instead gave him a tight hug saying it’s embarrassing when Akshay touches his feet.
Talking about the incidence Big B wrote on a micro-blogging site, “Embarrassed that Akshay does this ... no Akshay this is not done.”
