Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan was felicitated with the Pune Pandit Award at Tilak Smarak Mandir in Pune, on March 3, 2014.
Amitabh Bachchan wrote on Twitter: “The venue of the Award ceremony, being the same hall where I had long before shot for 'Main Azaad Hoon'...life is a circle!” The always-humble Big B added: “Then the Pune Pandit Award and an entire capsulation of my life and work...So awkward to sit on stage and listen to praise sung!”
Amitabh Bachchan, who travelled from Mumbai to Pune by road, attended three events there organized by the Symbiosis University, The Art and Music Foundation and the National Defence Academy respectively.
He wrote in his blog: “Some days just turn out to be exceedingly, visit and tour oriented...there is travel and its own pressures, recognition for the work done... or undone...celebration of the times and the Institutes...A moment of pride and honour..People and professionals...honour bestowing kindness and the great pride for the Gentleman and Warriors of the country...What a fascinating day it has been.”
