While Akshay Kumar returned with Karan Johar and his Brothers co-star, Sidharth Malhotra, Katrina Kaif and Salman Khan followed them together.

The star, 75, also shared a photograph from the event, where Irani and actor Akshay Kumar were presenting him with the award. Well, it wasn't a joke that embarrassed Big B but it was Akki's attempt to touch his feet.

On the work front, Amitabh Bachchan has geared up for his next Thugs Of Hindostan that also stars Aamir Khan and "Dangal" star Fatima Sana Shaik.

Sharing two photographs from the moment, Big B wrote: "Embarrassed that Akshay does this ... no Akshay this is not done", tweeted Big B. We can't decide what's more adorable - Big B's words or the IFFI moment. While we always knew Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif will bring the curtains down on this week long fiesta, Akshay Kumar's appearance was a surprise element. Directed by R.Balki, Padman releases next year in January.
