Amitabh Bachchan: I am least deserving of it (The Maestro Award)'

Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan was recently honoured with the Maestro Award, which was bestowed on him and flautist Hariprasad Chaurasia and santoor exponent Shivkumar Sharma by Subhash Ghai's institute Whistling Woods.

However, the Big B, who is known for his humility and modesty, took to his Facebook page to say, “The Award was called the Maestro Award ... but the fact is that I am least deserving of it, for the true maestro are standing beside me -Pt Hari Prasad Chaurasia, the flute genius, and Pt ShivKumar Sharma, the master of the santoor .. such an honor to be in their company .. they even did a film for me ..Silsila ..”

Bachchan Sr will be next seen playing the role of a social crusader in Prakash Jha's Satyagraha, which also stars Ajay Devgn, Arjun Rampal, Kareena Kapoor and Amrita Rao.
