Bollywood megastar Amitabh
Bachchan, who received this year's Dadasaheb Phalke Academy
award along with Dilip Kumar, says the veteran is a colossus
in the industry.
"The high as always, the meeting with Dilip Saheb, Dilip
Kumar, Yusuf Khan! It is tough to see a frail idol admired by
millions and my favourite, struggle to move and to recognise
familiar faces. Though he always does and has recognised mine.
But as always even in his frail health, the charm and grace
never ending....Dilip Saheb - a colossus! Once and forever,"
Bachchan posted on his blog.

The 69-year-old actor was also all praises for Kumar's
wife Saira Banu for taking care of the yesteryear star so
"Credit really to Saira ji who has looked after him so
well and still does, with great care and devotion," he added
Kumar, 89, married actress and beauty queen Saira Banu in
1966 when he was aged 44 and she was 22.
