Big B to be honoured with Hridaynath Award for Contribution to Hindi Cinema

He may have been the "Angry Young Man" of Bollywood's Golden Age but Amitabh Bachchan is more the Elder Statesman these days. 

The Bollywood icon, whose cabinet of accolades is already heaving with a plethora of honours, is to be recognized with the "Hridaynath Award" for Lifetime Achievement in cinema in recognition of his immense contribution to Hindi cinema.

The award will be presented by none other than the legendary Indian singer Lata Mangeshkar at a musical extravaganza organised by the Hridayesh Arts Foundation in Mumbai on 26 October.

The Foundation shares close ties with singer-composer Hridaynath Mangeshkar, younger brother of Lata Mangeshkar, and whose compositions are widely known in Hindi as well as Marathi cinema: his most notable work was as music composer for Yash Chopra's iconic Dilip Kumar-starrer 'Mashaal' from 1984.

The Hridaynath Award is just the latest in a long line of accolades granted the Senior Bachchan.

The 70-year-old was the first artist to receive the Filmfare Lifetime Achhievement Award - established in honour of the legendary Raj Kapoor - back in 1991 in lieu of his staggering body of work in Bollywood cinema and beyond.

In fact, Mr Bachchan is the most nominated artist in regards to the Filmfare Awards - India’s most prominent and oldest Hindi film industry awards ceremony.

In 1971, Bachchan won the Filmfare Best Supporting Actor Award for Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s emotional drama - film 'Anand'.

Having acquired cult status in Bollywood, 'Anand' would provide a spring board for the success that the actor enjoyed in the second half of his career.

Bachchan's other honours include the “Padma Shri” (1984) awarded by the Government of India and France’s highest civilian honour the 'Knight of the Legion of Honour' (2007) for his “exceptional career in the world of cinema and beyond”.

2013 saw Amitabh make his Hollywood Debut with a cameo in Baz Luhrman’s 1920's extravaganza “The Great Gatsby”, essaying the character of Meyer Wolfsheim.

In fact, the actor's 70th year has been particularly productive with appearances in everything from 'Bombay Talkies' to Prakash Jha's 'Satyagraha'; Amitabh's role as a Gandhian activist the solitary highlight of a largely disappointing political drama. 

More intriguingly however, reports say that the Bollywood veteran is in talks to appear in the sequel to the iconic 'Khuda Gawah', Mukul Anand's lavish 1992 epic which starred Bachchan and Sridevi and was set across India, Afghanistan, Nepal and Bhutan.
