Legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan took to social media to thank the International Federation Of Film Archives (FIAF) for honouring him with the prestigious FIAF Award.
The veteran actor is the first Indian to get this award that recognises efforts taken to preserve film heritage in the country. The award was presented to him virtually by Hollywood filmmakers Martin Scorsese and Christopher Nolan on Friday.
"I am deeply honoured to have been conferred with the 2021 FIAF Award. Thank you to FIAF and to Martin Scorsese and Christopher Nolan for bestowing the award on me in the ceremony today. Our commitment to the cause of saving India's film heritage is unshakeable and Film Heritage Foundation will continue its efforts to build a nationwide movement to save our films," he wrote alongside his Instagram image.
FIAF is a global organisation comprising film archives and museums across the world, and the actor's name was nominated for the honour by the FIAF affiliate Film Heritage Foundation.
