Megastar Amitabh Bachchan believes that while Oscars may be the biggest film awards, Indians should take pride in their own awards.
"First of all, we have to accept that it (Oscars) is the foremost award. In my view, it is for a different field, cinema of a different kind and language. We should feel proud of our own country and its awards," the 70-year-old said here Thursday when he was chosen India's prime icon for 2012 at CBS/Big FM awards function.
"If any other country feels that we deserve any of their awards, then it would be an honour for us," he added.
So far Indian music composer A.R. Rahman, sound engineer Resul Pookutty and lyricist Gulzar have won Oscars for their work in Danny Boyle's 2008-film "Slumdog Millionaire". Earlier, Bhanu Athayya won the Oscar for costumes for Richard Attenborough's "Gandhi".

Indian cine awards are rigged and biased. Just because he gets awards every year in some category, does not mean Indian awards are great. They predicide who to give awards. As they need BigB's presence and SRK's presence, those actors are rewarded and awarded most of the times in various ways.
Oscar awards dont cater to personalities. Or who is going to dance.
