Hema also called Amitabh an institution in himself. "I can't think of a more appropriate person to be nominated for the prestigious Phalke award than our multi-faceted, multitalented actor par excellence-Shri Amitabh Bachchan. He is a whole institution by himself given the multiple roles he has played with such ease. Congrats Amitji," she tweeted.
