Legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan has been conferred with Padma Vibhushan, the second highest civilian award in India. The megastar, who received the Padma Shri in 1989 and Padma Bhushan in 2001, received the award from President Pranab Mukherjee.
His entire family including wife Jaya, son Abhishek, daughter-in-law Aishwarya, granddaughter Aaradhya, daughter Shweta and grandchildren Navya and Agastya were in attendance.
Bachchan’s idol Dilip Kumar was also awarded with the Padma Vibhushan, but couldn’t make it to receive the award.

congrats amitabh bachan the legend, soon srk will also win this award.
Vijay p.,national awards are valueless.because LEHENDS like KING KHAN should have given padma bibhushan/bharat ratna for His consistency through out All the decade as well as highest times best actor equals with DILLIPJI.but look they gave it to amir whoonly did 3-4 reality movies.also the y gave amir before legend actor kamal hasan even,what kind hypocrisy is that?
LATAJI,BIGB ,KING SRK are only 3 who got civilian awards of France even also KING SRK got this awards from some other country’s also,this shows how cheap this national awards are.even they gave best film ti him tum instead of SWADES shows the level cheapness of these national awards.no one is even asking about it.
Amitabh Bachchan is just rocking! First international actor to get honorary doctorate from Egypt Academy of Arts, first Indian actor in whose name an Australian University instituted a scholarship, first Indian actor to have 7 honorary doctorates, the only actor along with Dilip Kumar to top BOI Top actor rankings for 14 consecutive years, first Asian actor to have his statue at Madame Tussauds London, voted #1 Greatest Star of the Millennium in BBC poll, the only Indian actor in Channel 4 UK list of 100 greatest stars in the world…
He redefined Indian cinema, stardom and entertainment and is symbol of India’s soft power. Our best cultural ambassador.
Well deserved honour.
As Lata Mangeshkar said, Amit ji deserves the Bharat Ratna too!
National and international honours like this, are earned. They can’t be bought.
Congratulations Big B on winning all 3 Padma Awards and having your entire family around to see you receive the honour and cheer for you. A proud moment!
You duffer!Only khans are real megastars & legends of bollywood.And for your kind information “DILIP KUMAR” real name is “YUSUF KHAN”.He is the first khan of bollywood.
