After receiving the award, Amitabh Bachchan is expressed his feelings about the honour he has received along with photos on his personal blog saying,

Amitabh Its been a glorious night at the CNNiBN Indian of the Year Awards. Yes we won, the team KBC and yours truly, but what a galaxy of great stalwarts of the country coming together on one platform and giving an inspiration and strength of a lifetime to viewers and the country.

An evening filled with a very strong emotion, a concern and a wish to be able to do something for the country after seeing and hearing the impassioned voices from all these very committed personalities.

When you look back at what you have contributed and compare it with what the co winners tonight did, you cannot but feel a sense of guilt, when efforts are compared. It makes one conscious of the fact that these great people sacrificed their self in the honor and integrity of the country. They did not care for themselves, they cared for the nation and their sacrifices for it cannot but remain inspirational.

Its been a warm night within, in thought and temperament, but a cold Delhi winter outside. Actually not cold cold, but a tolerable cold,

Amitabh Bachchan’s Daughter Shweta was also present at the Award Ceremony with Father to celebrate the happy moments,
