Anupam Kher gifted a Rs 1000 note to the director of his debut film Saraansh. Mahesh Bhatt had earlier tweeted: When the student outshines the teacher - the teacher dances with joy. Anupam your Padma Bhushan award has made me so, so proud"
"Earlier, there was a certain honesty in these awards but it's not the same case now. People have now forgotten to respect others and have become way too selfish. I would think that I was not as capable as those who were chosen for the Padma awards this year. I, however, thank all those who proposed my name for it," Mr Khan said
On Twitter, where he is very active, Anupam Kher posted several messages celebrating his award - and was promptly trolled for a tweet dated 2010 in which he dismissed the Padma honours as inauthentic. Twitter has excavated a 2010 post from the actor
"What a fabulous January to begin my year with. I'm the daughter of an Army officer. So, the feeling of receiving this civilian award is extremely special," said Priyanka Chopra. The actress is currently in Montreal, where she is shooting for her television series Quantico
"I don't know what to say. It is quite a mixed feeling. Very frankly I don't feel I deserve the honour. This is not humility. But can't deny that it also makes me so happy and proud to be with them," S S Rajamouli posted on Twitter. Baahubali director Rajamouli will receive the Padma Shri award
"Really grateful, honoured to be awarded Padma Shri. I accept it with all humility, this great respect bestowed by my Government and my country," Madhur Bhandarkar wrote on Twitter. He added: "I would like to thank my Producers, technicians, actors and my friends for this great honour and most importantly my family for their support"

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 Kumar tweeted: Tearful moment when the award was in my hands. How happy and proud my family was. Indeed Allah's mercy and blessing. Saira Banu said, "I am very proud with the honour that the government has given him. I was emotional. I am the proudest wife. Apart from the award people always love and respect him, that matters the most"
