Megastar Amitabh Bachchan was titled as the 'most distinguished personality 2010' at the BIG Television Awards. The actor told that he admires the tireless effort of the small screen fraternity and thinks that it is a "complex and vibrant" medium.
"So I went to the BigFm TV Awards and came back with one.. the most distinguished personality of the year in TV for the last year…," Amitabh posted on his blog, following the event Tuesday night. Amitabh Bachchan was seen returning to the television world with his quiz show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati'.
Mr. Bachchan will once again be seen hosting the season 5 of 'KBC', which will go on air on August 15. "The TV industry is a revelation for me…a most complex and vibrant medium .. a difficult medium to be in, and most of all a tough medium to be connected with. It takes the mickey out of you when you are asked to perform for it…and I speak from experience," he wrote.
"Hence my great admiration for all those that are connected with it, and continue to work each day for its betterment .. takes a lot out of the artistes and personalities that labor day and night in its working," he added.
Amitabh made his TV debut as a host of 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' in 2000, against the wishes of his family and friends. He writes, “When I was given the opportunity to work in it for the first time for 'Kaun Banega Crorepati', everyone told me I was making the biggest mistake of my life. Today, after receiving recognition, I am happy to have made that mistake!"
