It's a proud feeling for B-Town to hear the news that an university in Australia has come up with a scholarship in the name of our megastar Mr.Amitabh Bachchan. Feeling ecstatic over it, Big B wrote on his blog, "The La Trobe University names a scholarship after me, to be accorded to deserving students from all walks of life that will come and study media and entertainment courses here."
Mr.Bachchan had been in Melbourne on Thursday to inaugurate the Indian Film Festival Melbourne (IFFM). The event was also graced by the Australian governor and his wife. Expressing his gratitude to governance of Victoria, Australia, Bachchan further wrote, "Thank you, the Governance of Victoria for this gesture, fructifying the bonds that exist between our two nations and lending unstinted support to our film industry in conducting such events to acquaint the locals with our cinema." Big B is currently riding on the success of his recent film 'Bhoothnath Returns.
The gala festival IFFM, slated to be an eleven-day starry affair, will screen nearly 40 films.
