On receiving another doctorate on Saturday June 9 , this time from the Leeds Metropolitan University alongside Yash Chopra and Shabana Azmi, Amitabh Bachchan got extremely emotional.
"What makes this doctorate really special is the fact that I've received it in the UK. To be thus decorated in the country where my father (Harivanshrai Bachchan) got his doctorate at Cambridge, and that too in my father's centenary year, makes this a very emotional experience for me."
Of course the Big B also feels humbled by the experience. "My doctorate can never be compared with my father's. But this is a moment that I'll cherish forever."
