71 year-old Megastar, Amitabh Bachchan was honored with the Global Diversity Award 2013, at the State Room of Britain’s House of Commons.

Rt Hon John Bercow MP,  the Speaker of the House of Commons, presented the prestigious award to the Bollywood Godfather.  He called  him “a Bollywood icon and the most famous Indian film star of all time.”

He continued to describe the actor as a role model, saying: “You have been a role model and Amitabh you deserve the award.” British actor Hugh Grant was also present at the award ceremony.  Adding, “It is truly a great pleasure meeting Amitabh Bachchan. He is a gigantic actor, super star who is hugely popular. He is also like a saint in some way because of his charity and animal welfare work. If ever anyone who deserves the Global Diversity Award, it is Amitabh Bachchan. Congratulations.”

The ceremony recognized Amitabh as one of the most influential actors in the history of Indian cinema. He’s been seen in over 180 films in the last four decades and continues to make an impact even today.  “He is a Global patron for the diabetes charity Silver Star and last year was presented with a Mobile Diabetes Unit for his home city Mumbai named ‘Amitabh’ in his honor,” the citation said.

Mr Bachchan was filled with gratitude when receiving the “extremely historic award.” He continued to say:  “I have been extremely overwhelmed by the love and affection of the people of Great Britain,” and thanked his parents and family for their support in achieving what he did. He said when Keith Vaz introduced him to the Diabetes awareness campaign, “It has been a great privilege and honor to visit various cities in helping people to tackle diabetes.”

“My father taught English in Allahabad University and in 1952 he was the first Indian to get a Doctorate in English Language at the Cambridge. He completed his Doctorate in two years instead of the normal 4 years.” “There are very few institutions which can boast of such unity as the Film industry.” he added, referring to Bollywood of course.

When Mr Bachchan was asked about his forthcoming plans, he responded by saying “I just did a film called Satyagraha which dealt with socio-political issues. There are several other films in the pipeline including Bhootnath 2. I am also currently busy with the latest Hindi version of Who wants to become a Millionaire.

Congrats to Mr Amitabh Bachchan!

Mila Kunis and boyfriend Ashton Kutcher are reportedly planning to get married in Britain.

Since Kunis has been shooting in Britain for her movie Jupiter Ascending, the couple has been staying there for quite sometime now.

According to sources, “Mila and Ashton have fallen in love with Britain. They are desperate to get married as soon as possible because they want to start a family and are slightly old-fashioned about these things.”

“The first place they thought of was Stonehenge, but they’ve also been looking at the Royal Pavilion in Brighton. Mila loves the idea of a stately home or something in the English countryside,” the source added.

Although the couple is considering a lavish venue for their big day, sources say Mila and Ashton want to keep it very “low-key” with selective close friends and family.

The couple has yet to even announce their engagement, but sources say Mila has taken it to the next level by introducing Ashton to her parents.
