Tamil Super Star Rajinikanth on Thursday received centenary award for Indian film personality of the year at the opening ceremony the 45th International Film Festival of India (IFFI) in Goa, India.
Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan, chief guest of the IFFI 2014, presented the award to Rajinikanth. Tamil Super Star dedicated the award to all his film producers, directors, technicians and fans.
Rajinikanth said: "I came here to receive an award and not to make a speech that too after such an excellent speech by Amit Ji. I have no words to speak now. About 5 to 6 times, I couldn't make it to the IFFI before. This time I am fortunate and honored to receive such a prestigious award. I thank the Government of India and the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. I dedicate this award to all my producers, directors, technicians and fans. Thank you very much".
