Mumbai, Nov 17 (IANS) Looks like megastar Amitabh Bachchan had a tiring weekend with three mega events happening on the same day.

The 71-year-old had an overwhelming Saturday as his granddaughter Aaradhya Bachchan turned two year old, master blaster Sachin Tendulkar was chosen for the prestigious Bharat Ratna award, and he also watched "Ram-leela".

"An icon retires, a Ratna to his name, the nextgen celebrates her 2nd year ... and Bhansali's 'Ram-leela' mesmerises. Too much in a day," Big B tweeted on his Twitter handle SrBachchan.

He also praised the movie on the microblogging website, tweeting: "'Ram-leela'! The genius of Sanjay Leela (Bhansali), the passion of Deepika (Padukone) and Ranveer (Singh), the guile of Supriya (Pathak) and the rawness of Richa (Chaddha)!"

Big B worked with Bhansali in his critically acclaimed film "Black".
