While receiving the award it, the veteran actress gave a very emotional speech. Standing ovation also greeted the announcement of the 82-year-old actress as she was wheeled to the stage to receive her priceless award.
“I wish I could stand up. But if I stand up I will fall down. Are you all standing for me? Thank you. I am very very grateful to you.”
With tears rolling her cheeks, the octogenarian actress pleaded with anyone she has offended to forgive her just as she has forgiven anyone that has offended her.
