Indian cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar quoted a well liked dialogue of Amitabh Bachchan’s movie Agneepath to congratulate the actor on being nominated for Dadasahed Phalke Award recently.

Congratulating the actor on being named for the prestigious award, Sachin Tendulkar tweeted “Vijay Dinanath Chauhan, Poora Naam. Baap Ka Naam Dinanath Chauhan, Maa Ka Naam Suhasini Chauhan. Gaon Mandwa. Umar 36..." a line that gives me goosebumps even today!
May you continue to win hearts across the globe, Amit ji. #DadaSahebPhalkeAward”.




Not long ago, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar also took to his official twitter handle and announced the news of Amitabh being named for the award.

"The legend Amitabh Bachchan who entertained and inspired for 2 generations has been selected unanimously for #DadaSahabPhalke award. The entire country and international community is happy. My heartiest Congratulations to him," Javadekar tweeted on Tuesday while tagging Bachchan and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.




Son of late poet Harivansh Rai Bachchan, the veteran actor has been a part of Indian cinema for a long time now and has received many awards for his acting.

Previously, he was honoured with Padma Vibhushan, country’s second highest civilian honour in 2015.
