Big B, who also read out an excerpt from Gandhi's "The World of Tomorrow", shared his excitement on social media.

"A historic moment and a historic presence. I am honoured and humbled. I am so touched and honoured to have been given this pride of place at this most prestigious occasion," Amitabh wrote on his official blog srbachchan.tumblr.com.
