Submitted By AP Wire Service

HONG KONG (AP), Mar 13 - The Hong Kong International Film Festival plans to honor Indian screen legend Amitabh Bachchan with a lifetime achievement award at the event's Asian Film Awards.

Organizers said in a statement late Friday the 67-year-old actor will accept the award in person at the annual prize ceremony on March 22.

Bachchan has appeared in more than 100 movies in a career spanning four decades. His recent credits include ``The Last Lear,'' ``Sarkar Raj'' and ``Paa.''

Festival director Shaw Soo Wei said Bachchan left a mark on world cinema ``with tremendous talent, a rigorous work ethic and an uncanny ability to reinvent himself.''

Organizers will also present Chinese director Zhang Yimou with an award for outstanding contributions to Asian cinema.
