None other than the ex-Chairman of Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC), Pankaj Nihalani reinforced the fact that currently, no one in the industry deserved the award more than Mr Bachchan.
As per him, Big B has transformed the face of Indian cinema with his impeccable acting and humble nature. While the award is especially given to those who’ve retired from the industry but when it comes to Big B – there are no such boundaries. He is the most deserving icon in the world.
