Amitabh Bachchan will be the guest of honour at the Marathi International Film and Theatre Awards (MIFTA) that will honour films from the Maharashtra film industry on 17 December at Dubai.

MIFTA is the brainchild of Indian actor-director Mahesh Manjrekar. Commented the director, "At one point, Marathi films were a pioneer in bringing good cinema into India. We should not forget that Dada Saheb Phalke pioneered filmmaking in India by making the first feature film. But with Mumbai's Hindi-language Bollywood industry getting global attention in recent years, Marathi films have taken something of a backseat."

The show supported by the likes of Salman Khan and Farah Khan will have Marathi film stars including Nana Patekar, Atul Kulkarni, Vikram Ghokale and Sachin Khedekar gracing the evening.
