Megastar Amitabh Bachchan will be honoured at the 10th Pune International Film Festival to be held here Jan 12-19.
"The Pune Film Festival wishes to honour me for my contribution to cinema and I find that most embarrassing, for the truth is that I really have not contributed at all," Amitabh posted on his blog bigb.bigadda.com.
The list of those being honoured includes legendary singer Asha Bhosle and actor Sachin Pilgaonkar.
While Asha will be awarded for her invaluable contribution to the Indian cinema, Sachin will receive the honour for completing 50 years in the Indian film industry. As many as 250 films will be screened on 10 screens across the city during the festival.
