It's raining honours for Abhishek Bachchan. And the actor is pleased as punch over an honour that has now landed in his kitty.

Abhishek Bachchan has been named as the recipient of the 'Yash Bharatiya Samman' from the Uttar Pradesh government. For Abhishek, it is a feat that must necessarily thrill his heart, as his illustrious father Amitabh Bachchan hails from Allahabad in Uttar Pradesh.

More recently, the DHOOM 3 star had turned ambassador for END7, the first and only global public awareness campaign dedicated to controlling and eliminating the seven most common NTDs by 2020.

The Global Network for Neglected Tropical Diseases (Global Network) earmarked Abhishek Bachchan, Bollywood superstar and international humanitarian, as its first official END7 campaign ambassador in India to help raise awareness of neglected tropical diseases (NTDs).

Mr. Bachchan joins the END7 campaign at a crucial time, with India at the tipping point of achieving control and elimination of five NTDs affecting 500 million people by 2020.

''India represents 35 percent of the total global burden for NTDs, causing massive suffering among our poorest citizens. As a parent, I am deeply moved by the devastating toll of NTDs on children, and I want to ensure that no Indian child has to suffer needlessly,'' said Bachchan Junior, ''I am proud to serve as the END7 campaign's ambassador in India and hope that others will join me in ridding our country of these preventable diseases.''

Furthermore, Bachhchan Jr. will also be encouraging national and state level policymakers to continue making the cost-effective investment in NTD programs.

More power and honour to you, Bachchan Junior.
