Ajay Devgn: Padma Samman has put an extra responsibility on me
While Ajay Devgn, who has also won the prestigious Padma honour as he has been bestowed with Padma Sri, is busy shooting for his upcoming film SHIVAAY in Bulgaria, the actor is completely humbled to receive it. Though the actor is not in the country currently, he sent an official note gratifying and thanking enough for the honour.
Ajay Devgn says, "I feel deeply humbled yet elated to receive such honour from my own country. This announcement today makes it special for me when I'm filming abroad for my new film SHIVAAY. I'd like to acknowledge that Padma Samman puts an extra responsibility on me and I promise to serve my country for as long as I can."
Besides Ajay, actress Priyanka Chopra, Anupam Kher, Rajinikanth and singer Udit Narayan are also other few lucky winners of Padma Awards.
For last few months there has been a huge hue and cry about the AwardWaapsi thing, it’s heartening to witness that the film industry also has people like Ajay Devgn to respectfully acknowledge the same.
