Legendary actor Amitabh Bachchan will be felicitated with the Indian Film Personality of the Year Award at the International Film Festival of India (IFFI) 2017 at Goa. This is the first time that a presenter of this award is being felicitated with the same award. In IFFI 2014, Bachchan himself presented the same award to much revered actor from South India, Rajinikanth.
Earlier known as the Centenary Award, the Indian Film Personality of the Year Award was announced as a part of IFFI to honour a film personality for their outstanding Contribution in Indian Film Industry through their films, music and entertainment.
