Here is one more feather in the already overflowing cap of the great man. Evergreen badshah of Hindi cinema and youth icon of the millennium, Amitabh Bachchan, has been chosen for an honorary doctorate by the De Montforte University in Leicester, UK. He will be conferred the Doctorate of Arts on July 19 this year for his lifetime achievements in the field of movies and entertainment.
After receiving the honorary degree, he would address his fans at the Walkers Stadium at Filbert Way. The University attracts a sizeable number of Indian students every year and Leicester has a strong presence of ethnic Indians. There are several movie halls exclusively screening only Hindi films. The local government has been encouraging Indian production companies to arrive for shooting and post-production work.
Keith Vaz, MP of Leicester expressed delight that Amitabh has been chosen for the degree. He said that Bachchan was a major inspiration for the current generation about what one could achieve by sheer hard work and professionalism. His achievements in the field of movies and entertainment are awe-inspiring. Besides entertainment, Bachchan was also a goodwill ambassador for UNICEF. Hence, the multi-hued personality of the great man is worth emulation.
