Akshay Kumar also shared with the audience a childhood incident where he met with the legendary actor who not only gave a young Akshay his autograph but also shared with him the grapes he was eating. Akshay Kumar’s praises for the actor went through the glass ceiling and then he took B-town’s DON’s permission to touch his feet. Mr. Bachchan then posted on Twitter,

“embarrassed that Akshay does this ... no Akshay this is not done. embarrassed that Akshay does this... no Akshay this is not done.”

In his acceptance speech, the actor said,

“We see the same film, we laugh on the same joke, we cry on the same emotion, we sing the same songs. In this fast world of today, where can you find such a wonderful and worthy example of unity and integration as we do in the world of cinema.”
