He was felicitated by actresses Priyanka Chopra and Anushka Sharma.
"Honoured and humbled that Priyanka Chopra and Anushka Sharma take time out to present me India's Prime Icon of 2012 at CBS/BigFm," Amitabh tweeted after winning the title.

Also present at the event were director Sudhir Mishra, actress Neetu Chandra and Mr. Anand Chakravarthy, business head at Big CBS.
"We couldn't have asked for a better grand finale to the show, with the most deserving, Mr. Amitabh Bachchan, being conferred the title of the India's first ever Prime Icon. Epitomizing the word Icon, we are happy that India has selected the most commendable icon," Chakravarthy said in a statement.
