Big honour for Big B

September 2006
Big honour  for Big B

Amitabh Bachchan is now Dr Bachchan after being conferred an honorary degree of Doctorate of Arts by De Montfort University in Leicester recently. So another feather in the cap of the much-feted actor. Incidentally, after Shah Rukh Khan, it's now Big B's turn to do a voice-over. Bachchan will do both the Hindi and English dubbing for Luc Jacquet's French docu-film, March of the Penguins, to be released in both the languages.

Incidentally, former Miss World Priyanka Chopra has also been bestowed with an international honour of sorts. She will be representing India at the Global Leadership Forum in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In fact, by the time this appears in print, Priyanka would have made a speech on ‘Innovation of Competitive Edge'. She certainly seems to be the right choice for the honour, edging out as she has all her contemporaries. Lara Dutta would agree, right?
