Amitabh Bachchan Honoured By Mumbai University

Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who has been honoured countless times for his contribution to the film industry, can now add another feather to his cap. The Big B, as he is respectfully called, was recently honoured by the University of Mumbai.

Taking to his blog, the elated Shahenshah wrote, "The University of Mumbai felicitates me, they give me huge amount of blessings and gratitude." It also seems that a part of the Commerce syllabus has been dedicated to him and on getting to know this, the veteran further wrote, "The Commerce department tells me that I form a portion of their syllabus, teaching my phenomena to the students. They find it interesting enough for it to be a tool as a case study. I have never felt so embarrassed before... I shall acknowledge your affection, but to attribute all else to me and to give me that additional value is not something that I would endorse or accept."

One of the most respected actors of Bollywood, Amitabh Bachchan currently hosts the television quiz contest Kaun Banega Crorepati
