‘A gesture of humility’

Aswini shared a note on X (formerly Twitter), writing, “Falling short of words @SrBachchan sir,” with a folded hands emoji. The note he shared reads, “Nothing is higher or taller than the invincible Shri Amitabh ji…Such moments from yesterday’s event are quite unexpected and shockingly puzzling. His utmost love for me must have pushed him to do what he did. I reciprocate to Shri Amitabh ji’s gesture in humility with his highest sense of magnanimity. (sic)”

He further adds, “Amitabh ji is a valorous warrior of Indian cinema beyond time and the tallest of all the rows of Himalayas. Few moments in life are sacred emblems of eternal bond and such was his gesture of purity yesterday. I do, solemnly salute to his ultimate exhibition of eternal touch! Kudos to Shri Amitabh ji - the legend of all centuries! (sic)”

Amitabh on Aswini

Amitabh spoke about Aswini on stage at the event and said, “He’s the owner of Vyjayanthi Films along with his two daughters (Swapna, Priyanka) and I have never met a more simple, humble human being than Aswini. Every time on set, he’s the first person to be there, he’s at the airport to receive you, and he’ll ensure you’re protected, no one thinks like this.” Then the actor said, “With all due respect,” before touching Aswini’s feet, who also touched his feet in return.
