Anil Kapoor to Be Honoured by European Chamber of Commerce
Anil Kapoor will be felicitated for his contribution to cinema, the 62-year-old actor is one of the few in Bollywood to receive this
Is there anything Anil Kapoor can’t do? The 62-year-young actor continues to amaze and inspire with his energy and passion for work. He is of course, one of the few actors who have actually made an impact in Hollywood as well. Now, Anil Kapoor’s long and distinguished career gets another recognition and this time it’s from Europe. Anil Kapoor, say reports, will be felicitated for his contribution to the world of cinema and culture by the European Chamber of Commerce.
This kind of a honour is rare among Bollywood stars and very few actors from India have received it before the Slumdog Millionaire star.
ANI reports that Anil Kapoor will be felicitated by the Council of European Chambers of Commerce in India along with a European Union(EU) delegation as part of Europe Day celebrations on May 17. This was stated by an official spokesperson.
The actor has also been invited as the Chief Guest for the Europe Day, which is even commemorated to mark the foundation of EU and celebrate European peace and unity. "Anil Kapoor shall be felicitated for his decade long support in promoting the cause of children's rights along with his collaboration with the EU and Plan India for supporting the girls' rights," an official said.
EU Ambassador to India Tomasz Kozlowski, EU Member states Consuls and senior representatives from European and Indian Corporate world shall join the Europe Day celebrations. One of the aspects that will be highlighted is how Europe has always been a top favourite shooting destination for Indian filmmakers since many decades.
So that’s one more feature in the cap for Anil Kapoor. Recently, his picture with millennial stars like Disha Patani and Aditya Roy Kapoor for his next film Malang created much frenzy on social media since Anil looked younger than his co-stars! Take a look at the image!
