Dimple Kapadia announced his name and Amitabh went on to join her and veteran actor Raaj Kumar on stage. He thanked everyone for voting for him and received the award from Dimple.
Bachchan Sahab had won the Filmfare Lifetime Achievement Award a year before. Mentioning the same, he stated,
“I was very honored to have got that. I thought once I received that, it should be the end of any future awards. But the theme for today’s ceremony is the brave new face and I don’t see how I fall in either of those two categories. I am neither brave nor my face new. Since the theme of today’s function is for the future, for the new. I would like to share this award with my colleagues of the future, Mr. Sanjay Dutt and Aamir. I will be grateful if they come on stage with me and share.”
Sanjay Dutt went up to the stage and received the trophy from Amitabh Bachchan and both walked down the stage together.
