Megastar Amitabh Bachchan will be honoured with the Global Diversity Award in the British Parliament Wednesday.

"Tomorrow (Wednesday) there is more activity and honour coming my way, by meeting up with the Speaker of the parliament and to be taken around to the most private and secure parts of the structure, ending in presenting me with the Global Diversity Award...so humbling," he posted on his blog.

This won't be Big B's first international honour. In July 1999, he was named the Greatest Star of stage or screen of the Millennium in a poll by BBC.

In 2000, his wax statue was unveiled in Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in London. In 2003, he was conferred with the Honorary Citizenship of the French town of Deauville.

The megastar, who has appeared in over 180 films, including big hits like "Zanjeer", "Sholay" and recent ones like "Baghban" and "Paa", was accorded France's highest civilian honour, the Knight of the Legion of Honour, by the French government in 2007 for his exceptional career in cinema and beyond.

Amitabh carried the Olympic Torch relay in London, a day before the opening ceremony of 30th Games in 2012.
