Amitabh Bachchan to be honored at Dubai film festival.

Legendry Bollywood actor Big B will be honored with a Life Time Achievement Award at the sixth annual Dubai International Film Festival (DIFF) beginning here today.

The festival will open with 'Nine', a film starring Nicole Kidman and Penelope Cruz and also screen Indian flicks including Shaji Karun's 'Kutty Srank' and Indian superstar Ranbir Kapoor's 'Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year'. Among other Indian entries are 'Yogi', 'Well Done Abba' and 'Aval Peyar Tamilarasi'.

Trend-setting master-filmmakers join a league of fresh talent at the Indian cinema showcase of DIFF 2009. The selection is also representative of the cultural plurality of the country while offering perspectives on both urban and rural India.

The festival has come a long way since it began in 2004 when it showcased only 76 films from 27 countries.

This year, it will highlight 168 films from 55 countries and closes on December 16 with the world premiere of James Camerons mega-budget masterpiece 'Avatar'. 'City of Life', the first-ever feature film out of Dubai, directed by Emirati film-maker Ali Mustafa, telling the story of three individuals from different socio-cultural backgrounds, is another highlight of the festival.
