Amitabh Bachchan was presented the Stardust Award for the Best Actor at a glittering ceremony held in Mumbai last night for his towering and intense performance of an ageing theatre actor in Planman Motion Pictures - THE LAST LEAR. Amitabh was especially delighted to receive this award as it coincided with his 40th year in the film industry - 15th Feb, 1969 being the date when he signed his first film contract!

An elated Amitabh Bachchan said, ''I am so happy for the Makers & the Director - Planman & Rituparno Ghosh; for the faith in the Film & the courage to make something away from the norm.''

Arindam Chaudhuri, the delighted Producer of THE LAST LEAR added, ''When you make films that challenge the boundaries of film making, awards become a very important part of recognition. I am obviously very happy and excited. During the entire shoot, for me it was like a young fan watching his favourite star perform! And I feel proud to be associated with one of his career best performances''. With the screen award for best Indian film in English, the Stardust award for best actor, perhaps it's now over to the National awards next!

Internationally THE LAST LEAR has been most sought after. Recently in Paris, at the Salon du Cinema, a retrospective of Amitabh Bachchan was showcased with THE LAST LEAR as the opening film. The premier was extremely well attended with all the dignitaries of French cinema giving the film a standing ovation and had all the praise for the movie and all were thrilled after seeing such a power packed performance.
