“Thanks to #EU Ambassador Kozlowski @EU_Amb_India #EUIndiaEkSaath, for bestowing a prestigious award on me from the EU for being a bridge builder between India and Europe,” Bachchan tweeted.

Kozlowski responded to the actor’s post on the microblogging site saying his films bring European cinema lovers close to the Indian culture.

“Thank you @SrBachchan for celebrating with us Europe Day and European Year of Cultural Heritage. Your artistic accomplishments & contributions to Europe-India cultural ties are unique. You bring Indian culture closer to European film lovers. We honour you for that! @EU_in_India,” Kozlowski wrote.

Daughter Shweta accompanied Bachchan for the award ceremony.
