The director will be accompanied by veteran actor Rishi Kapoor for "Agneepath" screening, while for SOTY the filmmaker and his cast - Siddharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan will be present.
He is happy with the selection of his movies.
"It's a great tribute for the Indian film fraternity to be honoured at an international platform such as this. The fest also has a special emotional connect with me because my films, such as 'Kabhi Khushi...' have a vast audience in Morocco," the 40 year old said in a statement.
As Hindi cinema completes 100 years in 2013, the film fest officials have decided to pay a tribute to the industry. As a special gesture, they will screen some movies that made a mark this year as well as in the past.
