The Rabindra Bharati university today conferred an honorary doctor of letters degree (DLitt) on erstwhile Hindi cinema superstar Amitabh Bachchan for his contribution in the field of arts.

Bengali film star Prosenjit Chatterjee congratulated Bachchan in a tweet and said the man known to a section of the media as the Big B has been one of his greatest inspirations as there is so much to learn from him.

The honour was conferred on the ‘Undisputed Godfather of Bollywood’ as the recommendation sent by vice-chancellor Sabyasachi Basu Ray Chaudhury was approved by the West Bengal governor Kamalesh Tripathi, who is the chancellor of the university.

The film fraternity in Bengal is eagerly waiting for Bachchan’s response now.
