Maharashtra Governor C Vidyasagar Rao, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis were among other dignitaries present at the actor's home when he received the award
"No matter how many awards he gets, it will be less for him because of his art, beauty and Sairaji's support. He is one of the greatest human beings apart from being an actor. I know them personally, so I can say that. It's a moment of big celebration," said Shah Rukh
"Dilip sahab used to do one film at a time in two or three years and he did relevant films like Paigham, Gunga Jumna. I don't know if today's generation will have this thing or not. Aamir Khan follows Yusuf sahab (Dilip Kumar). Even Shah Rukh Khan is doing work and Salman Khan is also doing well," Saira Banu said
