He continued: “My father, a great poet – during the last days of his life, he used to watch a Hindi film every evening. I asked him ‘what is it that you find interesting in cinema?’ He said, ‘I get poetic justice in three hours. You and I won’t get poetic justice in a lifetime or several lifetimes.’ “That’s the power of cinema. I’m proud to be a very small part of the film industry of my country. When you honour me today, you honour the film industry of my country, you honour my country,” he further added.

Amitabh was accompanied by his family members including Shweta Bachchan Nanda and Abhishek Bachchan in Saudi Arabia.
