Amitabh Bachchan was honoured recently with the Global Diversity Award in the British Parliament. Before receiving the award he posted on his blog: “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.” This won’t be Big B’s first international honour. In July 1999, he was named the Greatest Star of stage or screen of the Millennium in a poll by BBC. 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.
