When Big B walked on the stage to receive the honor, the audience gave him the standing ovation. Receiving such an honor from audience, his eyes went moist. “A sense of great pride. The President of India presenting award for Best Actor for Paa. Eyes moist as the audience gives a standing ovation. Which in formal functions is an abnormality.
