Four-times National Award-winner Amitabh Bachchan says ‘I am humbled’

Humility, thy name is Amitabh Bachchan. When this senior correspondent texted the versatile mega-star to congratulate him, for being conferred with this coveted accolade, within five minutes, the Big B responded with  “ Thank you, gracious of you, I feel humbled”.

The fourth National Award this time to the self-effacing Padma Vibhushan par excellence actor has not come as a startling surprise to the Bollywood biradari. That’s because it was richly deserved. Although “Piku” was supposedly a heroine-centric movie, it was Bachchan’s cranky, hypochondriac ‘constipated’ possessive character ‘Bhaskor’ and his absolutely authentic, spontaneous performance, which stole the show. One could easily quip that ‘Bhaskor’ deserved the Oscar’.

Meanwhile, even the National Award for the Best Actress has been ‘deservingly’ won by Kangana Ranaut (it’s her third National Award) who had put in commendable efforts, to bring out the contrasting colours of both her ‘look-alike’ challenging female lead characters in ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’.
Incidentally the chirpy Kangana who was going through a recent personal crisis is “maha-thrilled” for two reasons—one because her favourite actor, Amitabh has won the Best Actor National Award .

Secondly, because it’s a belated birthday gift for her (23rd March was her janamdin) .

Yet again, the vibrant Sanjay Leela Bhansali proved that he is the ‘showman’ bagging the ‘Best Director’ Award for ‘Bajirao Mastani’ while critically acclaimed Tanvi Azmi won the Best Supporting Actress for ‘Bajirao..’, will never ever regret having ‘tonsured’ off her hairy glory.

On the musical front, gorgeous singer-actress Monali Thakur, who won the National Award for her lilting song ‘Moh Moh Ke Dhaage’ (‘Dum Laga ke Haisha’) seemed euphoric “I was overwhelmed. This song is very special to me. Just as Anu Malik-ji has composed it so lovingly, I too had put my heart and soul in it. The lyrics were so beautiful that even lyricist Varun Grover also won the National Award for the same song,” she smiled.
