"The Hong Kong's Asian Film Festival now wishes to honour me before the end of the month. And so soon after I leave the picturesque shores of Oman, I should be heading further east to receive what I believe, not so much a personal recognition, but one that comes to me as a member of the film industry of India and indeed India itself," the 67-year-old posted on his blog.
"Yet another moment when the Indian tricolor shall earn recognition on foreign soil. A moment of pride for me, a fraternity of which I am part and a country whose citizenship I cherish," he added.
Amitabh was honoured with the lifetime achievement award at this year's Apsara Awards and Muscat Film Festival as well, besides winning several awards for best actor.
