Not that this is the first time that Amitabh Bachchan has been awarded with any such title, but it is a fact that he is the Prime Icon of India,
Amitabh Bachchan has won the title of ‘India’s Prime Icon’, on thursday by the Big CBS Prime’s show where he was competing along with other aces of Bollywood Aamir Khan, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Ranbir Kapoor and AR Rahman, the list also included Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi.
Amitabh Bachchan said,
Honoured and humbled that Priyanka Chopra and Anushka Sharma take time out to present me India’s Prime Icon of 2012 at CBS/BigFm.
Prime Icon??!! Gosh that is far too farfetched for me … and to have Sachin (Tendulkar), Lataji (Lata Mangeshkar), Aamir, SRK, Modi (Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi), Nitish (Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar)… as contenders,
Business head of BIG CBS Mr Anand Chakravarthy said,
We couldn’t have asked for a better grand finale to the show, with the most deserving, Mr. Amitabh Bachchan, being conferred the title of the India’s first ever Prime Icon. Epitomizing the word Icon, we are happy that India has selected the most commendable icon.
