Big B addresses Cannes in Hindi

It was a historic moment for the legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan. As he was invited to open the prestigious Cannes International Film Festival with his maiden Hollywood project, The Great Gatsby.

 Big B made the occasion more special by addressing the audience in his mother tongue Hindi. "Truly a historic moment for me, but immensely historic and honourable for the Indian film industry, a fraternity that I am and shall always be most proud of," Amitabh posted on his blog.

 It was an “emotional” experience, he also shared on Twitter.

 "For a complete alien in the midst of Cannes to be acknowledged, is the proudest moment for me as an Indian. Acknowledging Cannes in recognising 100 years of Indian cinema, it was absolutely imperative for me to address, in my mother tongue," Big B added.

 He further added that how the "director of Cannes (was) delighted to hear the ‘music of the Hindi language’ as ‘it brought in the universality of the occasion’.”
