Mumbai: Thanking the Central Government for presenting the prestigious Padma Vibhushan Samman to Indian cinema’s legendary Dilip Kumar on Sunday, veteran filmmaker Subhash Ghai said that the thespian deserved ‘it long back’.

Ghai, took to Twitter to thank the BJP led Central govt for honouring Dilip Kumar with the nation’s second highest civilian award, which was long overdue.

Here’s what Ghai tweeted:

Subhash Ghai, who feels fortunate for having been able to direct the legend in three films, was overwhelmed.

On December 11, when the thespian turned 93, Ghai took to Twitter to wish Kumar.

He tweeted:

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and Governor Vidyasagar Rao visited Kumar’s residence in Mumbai on Sunday to present the prestigious award to the legend.

The announcement to honour Dilip Kumar, Amitabh Bachchan from the film fraternity with the Padma Vibhushan was made by the government on the eve of Republic Day on January 25, 2015.

However, Kumar could not attend the special function held at Rashtrapati Bhavan in April to receive the honour owing to health issues.
