This year, Filmfare gave away Special Legend Awards to two of the biggest icons Chiranjeevi and Mammootty. They were presented the award by an equally distinguished legend Amitabh Bachchan . It was a moment of delight for photographers as three of India's finest actors shared the stage. A greedy connoisseur might rue the absence of Rajnikanth but nobody was complaining, as it does not get bigger than this.  Here are the bytes from the legends...... 

               Chiranjeevi:  "This is a special award for me, coming as it is on such a landmark year for the South Indian film fraternity. This year besides being the Platinum Jubilee of Tollywood, is also the 60th anniversary of Indian independence," he said. He had a word of advice for everybody. "Film is a very powerful medium and as artistes we can contribute by drawing attention to burning issues.  I appeal to all filmmakers to be mindful of their responsibilities," he added.

              Mammootty:  "I feel on top of the world today, to be called a legend, to be awarded the statuette by a legend, (Amitabh Bachchan) and to, receive it in the presence of alegend-Chiranjeevi, and all this in the presence of the entire South Indian film industry.  I am happy and blessed.  I will keep this lady (referring to the statuette) close to my heart". When he was given the Best Actor Award by Abhishek and Aishwarya Bachchan, he said, "Aishwarya and I did a film together...This is the most-celebrated couple of the country...I couldn't make it for their wedding but am glad to be receiving the award from them." Incidentally, he also took home the award for Best Actor for Malayalam movie, Karuthapakshikal
