October 25, 2010 (Sampurn Wire): Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan received the fourth national award of his career on Friday for his excellent performance in the role of a 12-year-old kid suffering from progeria. The Amitabh Bachchan – Abhishek Bachchan starrer “Paa” has already been acclaimed a commercial hit cinema in the past, and the award presented to Amitabh Bachchan only proves that he is still the best actor in B-town. Amitabh Bachchan was accompanied by his entire family at the awards ceremony and it was indeed a moment to cherish for the actor when everyone present was up in standing ovation for the actor.

Dressed in a black bandhgala, Amitabh Bachchan collected his fourth National Award from President Pratibha Patil. Though actors from Bollywood’s younger generation were not present at the ceremony, the megastar’s entire family, wife Jaya, son Abhishek, daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and daughter Shweta, more than made for the absence. However, the whole of Bollywood did use the platform of Twitter and various media outlets to congratulate the actor on his achievement. While Abhishek Bachchan wrote that he was a proud father today as his ‘son’ had come home with a National Award, actress Shilpa Shetty said that an award is not enough to celebrate the great actor’s achievements.
