Amitabh Bachchan to be honoured with Global Diversity Award

Big B will receive the award in the British Parliament

This won’t be first time that Amitabh Bachchan is receiving an international honour. Before the Global Diversity Award, Big B was named the Greatest Star of stage or screen of the Millennium in a poll by BBC in July 1999.

“Tomorrow (Wednesday) there is more activity and honour coming my way, by meeting up with the Speaker of the parliament and to be taken around to the most private and secure parts of the structure, ending in presenting me with the Global Diversity Award…so humbling,” he posted on his blog.

In 2000, his wax statue was unveiled in Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in London. In 2003, he was conferred with the Honorary Citizenship of the French town of Deauville.

The megastar, who has appeared in over 180 films, including big hits like Zanjeer, Sholay and recent ones like Baghban and Paa, was accorded France’s highest civilian honour, the Knight of the Legion of Honour, by the French government in 2007 for his exceptional career

Amitabh carried the Olympic Torch relay in London, a day before the opening ceremony of 30th Games in 2012.
